SYSWW with Bringing Up Burns

I love “group text messages” because they can get pretty funny, plus they provide material for blog posts. Actually, several of my blog posts have been inspired by a text message or two. I had an awesome group text with Erin a few days ago. We were discussing WIWW-What I’m Wearing Wednesday, which is a great weekly meme where women post outfits from the past few days. This all started to get people to wear less sweatpants, and to accessorize and make more of their usual outfits.

But I wear a uniform for real job {work}, FIVE DAYS A WEEK! And my other uniform for my part time job {running, ha} is workout clothing. Honestly, I want comfy clothing when I’m not working or running. Believe me, I do have some cute clothing in my closet. It’s there behind all of the solid colored t-shirts from Gap, and hoodies.

So Erin came up with a rad new meme for people like us SYSWW aka “Shit You Shouldn’t Wear Wednesday”. She posted about it on Thursday. I’ve been super busy wearing clothing that should be featured on SYSWW the past few days. I may have been wearing an awesome outfit on Wednesday when our group text began.

SYSWW-Outfit of the Week, Angry Julie Monday

I took this photo around 10am on Wednesday. I had to refer to my text messages for proof. I may have taken my son to school in this fancy attire. Everyone is quite lucky that I did not get out of the car. ¬†Although the owl pj pants from Target, green Gap t-shirt, and my “run” hoodie….I wear this hoodie a lot, like several times a week. It is quite ridiculous.

I have been tapering this week for the Tinker Bell Half Marathon on Sunday. Tapering= Not Running 20+ miles a week. Tapering = Julie having too much free time. I also switched work schedules and I have my mornings free now. My mornings this week have consisted of getting up, dropping kid off at school, coming home, thinking about working out, and deciding to get back in bed under my warm covers…to watch Homeland.

Homeland Logo

Ya, I’m a bit late to this Homeland thing. Ok, I have to admit that we just got DirecTV in December, and we have the pay/big money channels free right now. So after hearing everyone rave about Homeland, I started watching it via OnDemand last week. I just got to Season 2 yesterday. I have several episodes to finish, so if you are wondering what is keeping me busy, well it is Homeland.

Although my husband who watches it at night sometimes, admits that he can’t get over the lead actor Damian Lewis who plays Nicolas Brody. Damian Lewis played Richard “Dick” Winters in my husband’s favorite series ever, Band of Brothers. Although, I think that is why I love watching the show even more now.

Little Mermaid Photos

Yay, my outfit isn’t very stylish. I went to Disneyland yesterday, and took some awesome photos while on the Little Mermaid Ride. Ariel and Ursula are so rad in their own ways. It isn’t every day that you meet a natural redhead and one of the most popular Disney villains. I think I would rather have the tail though, and a cute little fish friend, though.

Back to the original point of this post….It is ok to wear awesome owl jammies. Just make sure you brush your hair and take a shower. You don’t want to be mistaken for a 1. homeless person 2. mental health patient or my favorite, 3. Walmart shopper. And the glasses are my favorite part. I had no reason to put my contacts in, so I rocked my white Tiffany & Co. glasses.

So if you want to join in on the fun, be sure to post your very own, SYSWW outfits! Be rad like Erin and me.


If someone were to see me today, they'd nominate me for TLC's "What Not to Wear!"


Ha!! I'm a spaz, but I'm so lucky to have friends like you who "get" me. I'm in jeans, vans and a surf team sweatshirt today. Messy bun. That's practically dressed up! Lol. Rock your Tinkerbell Half today!! Love you.
