Me Through The Years

Me Through The Years

I RECENTLY CELEBRATED A BIRTHDAY, NOT A MONUMENTAL ONE, BUT A SIGNIFICANT ONE AS FAR AS TURNS AROUND THE SUN GO. BIRTHDAY’S ARE A BIG DEAL TO ME. I ALWAYS PLAN HUGE PARTIES BECAUSE I WANT TO BE CELEBRATED WHILE I’M LIVING AND NOT AT MY FUNERAL.

“SO AS WE AGE, SO WE EVOLVE, OR SO WE SHOULD.”(I’M NOT SURE WHO SAID THIS BUT I’M SURE SOMEONE DID) I DO HAVE SEVERAL PICTURES OF MOST DECADES OF MY LIFE, BUT NOT AS MANY AS I SHOULD, AND CAN’T FIND MOST OF THEM. THE COLLAGE I POSTED ABOVE INCLUDES PICTURES THAT I FELT SHOW DIFFERENT HAIR, DIFFERENT TIME PERIODS AND DIFFERENT CLOTHING OPTIONS!

I CHOSE THESE PICTURES BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH THE ADULT PICTURES OF ME ARE NOT THAT FAR APART IN TIME, THEY SHOW VARIOUS MOMENTS IN STYLE FOR ME. NOW, IF YOU KNOW ME CHANGING THINGS AT ALL HAS KIND OF BEEN A BIG DEAL TO ME. I’VE HAD THE SAME HAIR FOR THE MOST PART SINCE THE LITTLE GIRL IN THE RED DRESS, AND MY CLOTHES HAVE SADLY BEEN DICTATED BY THE AFFORDABLE(MOSTLY CLEARANCE) OPTIONS AT BOUTIQUES SUCH AS: OLD NAVY AND GOOD WILL, AND I’M THE FIRST PERSON TO BRAG ON MY LESS THAN $10 FINDS, BUT LATELY I’VE BEEN ADDING A FEW MORE EXPENSIVE (MIND YOU, STILL UNDER $50) PIECES THAT I KNOW WILL LAST FOR ME YEARS(HOPEFULLY).

THIS IS PART OF EVOLVING FOR ME. BEING WILLING TO SPEND A LITTLE EXTRA FOR SOMETHING, TO TRY A NEW HAIRSTYLE, AND TO POST MORE PICTURES OF MYSELF. WELL, SUPERFICIAL EVOLVING ANYWAY. THERE’S BEEN SOME OTHER EVOLVING AS WELL, THE FACT THAT I’M WILLING TO POST PICS AND BUY NEW CLOTHES IS A CHANGE FOR ME MENTALLY. I’VE GAINED ABOUT 30 POUNDS IN THE LAST 3 YEARS, AND THAT’S BEEN AN EVOLUTION THAT I’VE HAD TO COME TO TERMS WITH. IT’S BEEN AN ODD COMING TO TERMS WITH MYSELF AS I SEEK TO FIND OUT WHY I’M HAVING THESE STRUGGLES WITH MY WEIGHT, BUT IT HAS ALSO BEEN THE PUSH TO TRY TO NEW CLOTHES AND NEW HAIRSTYLES. AS A MUSICIAN, I DON’T HAVE THE LUXURY OF HIDING AT HOME, AND INSTEAD OF WEARING ALL BLACK (EVEN THOUGH I DO LIKE BLACK BUT NOT JUST FOR SLIMMING REASONS) I HAVE CHOSEN TO DRESS MY NEW, FULLER FIGURED BODY,IN NEW, FUN WAYS AND TO SAY THAT’S IT CAN BE A CHALLENGE IS NO OVERSTATEMENT.

ANOTHER PART OF EVOLVING FOR ME IS DECIDING WHAT TO DO WITH THE NEXT CHAPTER OF MY LIFE. AS THE NOT GREAT, SELF-PICTURE TAKER (AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE PICTURES ABOVE), I DON’T THINK IT WILL BE AS AN INSTAGRAM MODEL OR BRAND AMBASSADOR, BUT I HAVE SOME THINGS THAT I’M READY TO START SHARING AND ADDING TO MY RESUME THAT I KNOW I’M GOOD AT.

AS I HAVE EVOLVED PERSONALLY, I HAVE ALSO EVOLVED PROFESSIONALLY. HENCE THE NEED FOR GINGER GRACE MUSIC TO MAKE A FEW CHANGES AND EVOLVE AS WELL. I AM STILL GOING TO BE SHARING NEW MUSICIANS THAT I COME ACROSS BUT THERE IS SO MUCH TO SHARE, SO SUBSCRIBE AND EVOLVE WITH ME!

p.s. The Ralph Lauren model is not a mistake, that’s a style I intend on trying, the pre-show picture is to give you an idea of how far my style swings. You’ll see those pants again worn different ways, stay tuned!

Leopard pants pictured are Time and Tru Millennial Side Zip Pant and can be purchased at your local Walmart or online: (note* they are little less at Walmart, and run a little big! I’m wearing a 12 and could have done a 10, my normal pant size is a 10/12.) The shirt is Ay Guey! A fun brand from Mexico. Most styles are few of a kind so the link is a shirt I like but not my exact one.
