Team Spirit! That Delicate Balance! Go Lions Go!!

Last year, I wrote about how much I love high school football and Friday nights in Texas!!  Though I no longer have sons on the field, I still must go support the home team and experience the life and exuberance of Friday Night Lights!!

But, I have learned there is a fine line you walk with spirit fashion between appropriate support and just over-the-top craziness.  I have learned to let the students be the ones to don crazy head grear, ninja suits, and face paints!!  I don't want to be discussed on Face Book later that night as the butt of teen jokes.  There are days that I cringe at some of the spirit looks I wore in the past...oh well, let's just leave the past in the past.

Homecoming Accessories:  A MUM!
Bracelet: Kohls

I had a couple of goals last night when preparing for the game.  I really wanted to wear my new Jana Kos coat, and I needed to wear a headband and mum gifted me by students.  Though the coat was not team colors, it worked well with the maroon and gold.  Over all I was pleased with the total look.  Comfortable, warm, and a little style thrown in!!

Designer: Alyrose Chesser
Top Knots and Polka Dots
Can order in any colors!  Great gifts for Christmas...
young girls love them!!

This is how I will dress until one day I am given a T Shirt that says, "My grandson (or daughter) is on the team!"  Then I might have to get a little crazy once again!!


  1. Pam, I am soooo delighted to find your blog! I love beauty tutorials and outfit-of-the-day features, but everyone seems to be a size 0 and 19 years old. How refreshing and inspiring to find someone like me, who is aiming to be the best "woman of a certain age" she can be! I love your style!

    By the way, I'm following you now and have added you to my sidebar.

  2. This red coat is really a statement piece that can take you almost anywhere ,it's up to accessorising I quess. You've done a great job here.

  3. I love the gold brooch and the flowers in your hair, yeahhhhhhhhhhhhh

  4. I truly love your posts. You have a great gift and express yourself beautifully.
    I don't have that gift. I guess my gift would be my ability to make people laugh. I just need to learn how to write it like I do it!
    I have been thinking about taking a creative writing just to help me reach that mini goal. We'll see. For now it's just a baby thought!

  5. For many years I taught Sunday School with a group of people who were predominantly school teachers. I was constantly amazed at the number of holiday sweaters and outfits they came up with.

    It rubbed off on me - I found myself at Kohl's picking up a snowman sweatershirt....

    I think it's an instance where you just have to go with the flow although at a certain age it's probably best to avoid both the Ninja Warrior and the Wicked Witch.

  6. Wonderful brooch! I love your look and your team spirit. LOL at Rose's comment about avoiding the Wicked Witch costumes : >

  7. Pam, the coat is beautiful and looks marvelous on you. You should wear more red. The mum is lovely and what a nice gift it was.

  8. Pam -- you look like you're having such fun! The high school that my kids all went to -- their team is undefeated so far this year, and they're ranked number 2 in the state. None of my kids played football, but it's still kind of exciting when that happens.


Thanks so much for joining in our conversation today! I appreciate your time and love hearing from you!
