WIWW: Whole Foods Market Workshop Edition

Yesterday I had a fabulous time leading a green cleaning workshop at Whole Foods Market here in Providence, RI. Even though I've lead the same workshop several times, I don't do them very often so I was a little nervous. An early evening shower and popping on my power sweater and skirt helped relieve my anxiety a bit.

What I Wore at My Whole Foods Market Green Cleaning Workshop

Power Sweater: Vintage by Melange via clothing swap // T-shirt: H & M // Power Pixels Skirt: Necessary Objects //  Superthick leggings: random discount store // Earrings: Made with coconut shells and red string by NYC street artist // Boots: Land's End // Silver Bracelet: Hippie 70's via Mom // Awesome hand drawn sign: Hilary, the store artist // Green Purse: Urban Expressions // Coffee Mug: Vintage via Fishs Eddy

Some words about my hair: I had to blow dry my braid out because it was wet and I needed to leave for my presentation. Surprisingly, that night it was okay, as you can see in my smiling picture. But the next day, as you can see from my photo with my gorgeous kitty Lucy, it was kind of cray-cray. (Yes, I wore the outfit again as second day fabulous outfits are the perfect attire for sitting around your house baking bread and surfing the internet!)

Any ladies with 4A-type natural hair have tips for blow drying braid outs? I very rarely use heat on my hair, but I need an emergency plan for wet braid emergencies that does not include wearing a wig or a hat! I'm open to other styles but once I've combed my hair in preperation for a braid out a wash-and-go is out of the question because my coils are gone and it's frizz-city!
