Fan Friday - Panthers Jersey and Versace Mom Jeans

As I'm running an informal NFL Playoffs pool at work over the next couple of weeks, I chose today to show my team colours. Go, Carolina Panthers! 
We will beat the Arizona Cardinals, and be in the Super Bowl!

  • Jersey - NFL Shop, gift from L
  • Jeans - Versace, vintage late 80s/early 90s, thrifted; first worn here in December with embroidered velvet
  • Shoes - Diba, thrifted; first seen here in November when our trees fell down
Why am I a Carolina Panthers fan? I live nowhere near Carolina, and I don't know anyone from there. The closest team to me is Seattle, geographically (they are my 3rd favourite team, after L's Miami Dolphins, of course). I'm so glad you asked!  

I started watching NFL football in 1995, the year I met L. The following year, two new teams entered the NFL as expansion teams (whole new teams created): the Carolina Panthers and the Jacksonville Jaguars. Well, instead of bandwagoning onto the Dolphins (so predictable), I decided that I wanted to be a fan of a team right from the start. "I'm an original fan," I could say proudly in 20 years. We had a black cat (Othello) and I didn't want to pick another Florida team, so the Panthers it was.
Who has two thumbs and loves Luke Kuechly?
And here we are, 20 years later.

Second wearing of the Versace Mom jeans, and holy smokes I love them. I need to glam them up with some really high heels at some point, though. They deserve better than a jersey and flats.

The stuff:
Cheap little flats. They did the job.

  • Earrings - white gold, 10th anniversary gift from L

And now, off to start my weekend with some wine and board games with L! My social calendar is packed to the gills over the next couple of months, so I am looking forward to the downtime this weekend to recuperate. Have a good weekend!


  1. Your lips to the football gods ears! I will be watching tomorrow and cheering along with you. xo


  2. Sheila, I'm not up to speed with your football league, but you look great in that shirt. I've got a couple of pairs of mom jeans and really need to get them styled up for my blog - they're so good to showcase a neat butt. Hope you have a brilliant weekend x

  3. Very cool outfit! I must say, I have quite a range of garments in my wardrobe, but nary a jersey in recent years. I'm thinking the last one I had (that, interestingly, I wore into the ground) was a ruby one when we lived in Ireland.

  4. I see the Versace jeans turned out to be a great purchase.
