On Being Thankful

by Kate Franco on November 30, 2014 · 2 comments

cream cozy sweater 5cream cozy sweatercream cozy sweater 3Thankful for a long weekend that has given me a little time to breathe, think, and blog. Thankful for a partner who is strong and smart and thoughtful and kind. Thankful for my house, which has become my home and the place where I build dreams. Thankful for a community like Uforia, that makes me stronger and more appreciative of the health I do have. Thankful for my family, because they matter most of all.

I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful too!

And about the outfit: My looks lately have been super low maintenance and I haven’t been putting the pressure on myself to document and share them. You can only check out a black t-shirt and jeans so many times. However, this chunky sweater was an impulse buy at H&M and I thought it was worth the share; I’m definitely impressed with the construction and quality. We’ll see how it holds up over time!

Hip Hop Anonymous + The Dancewear Project

what to wear to hip hop classes what to wear to hip hop classes what to wear to hip hop classes what to wear to hip hop classes what to wear to hip hop classesI’ve been trying to upgrade my body roll skills with some hip hop classes at Uforia. And while crazy workout pants are usually my thing, for hip hop, I find that I need something a little more chill. I recently came across a new line called the dancewear project, and I’m in love with this mesh leotard. Honestly, it’s probably been 20 years since I’ve worn a leotard, and I was surprised by how comfortable this one is. I’m trying to figure out how to style it in real life!

So, if you’re looking for what to wear to hip hop classes, this leotard is your jam. I paired it with some killer high top Nike dunks (a steal at $30 on Poshmark!) and my new Without Walls skinny sweatpants.

Feeling fly never hurt anyone, either.

Photo credit goes to my little sis, who’s developing a major interest in photography!
