Happy Birthday Michelle Obama! My Fav Looks from the First Lady!

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

Today is Mrs. Obama’s birthday and what better way to celebrate the style maven’s big day than by paying homage to her best looks! I admire the way that she embraces trends but still manages to look chic and timeless. I have included my 15 faves below – let me know your thoughts!

Love the use of prints- and the on trend neon color in the cardigan!

Print on print!! This look is a fav on the runways but Mrs. O makes it street chic too!!

All black everything! Proportions are perfection in this look and I am loving the thick leather belt.

Not only is the print of this garment stunning but the length of the drape is on point- perfect for the first lady’s long legs!

Holy hourglass!! Michelle goes glam by pairing her very on trend sequin long skirt with a waist belt that makes her middle look tiny!! She doesn’t go overboard by pairing with a simple black sweater top.

This look just might be my ultimate fav! I love love love the one shoulder and the tone of the dress- even though it is a neutral tone it has a marble effect which gives it a little extra. I also am obsessed with the black bangles that she pair with the dress.

Michelle would have been on my best dressed look had she worn this to the Golden Globes on Sunday! I love the color and of course the mermaid cut of the dress.

Mrs. O is a gain on trend with the cut outs on this dress. She manages to do it is a chic age appropriate way. Bravo!

Can I have that coat? Like seriously I want that coat. Love the oversized fit, love the stripes, love the wrap tie and LOVE the blue leather gloves to set it all off!

Even in her “comfy clothes” this woman is a true fashionista. I love the super trendy heart on the sweater and the Converse are a nice touch too 😉

Hi color pop!! Michelle is yet again right on the money with this neon color pop- neon and super chic – this lady knows what she is doing!!

Did I already have a favorite? Well this just might replace it. She seriously knows how to wear her prints!

Matching prints- and again she manages to doing flawlessly with perfect proportion. Perfect length of skirt for her height, love the waist belt and the cropped jacket just brings it on home.

How cool is that skirt- I WANT!!! She of course wears it perfectly by pairing with a simple black tank.

Can I have three favorites?! Obsessed with the tuxedo dress…anyone who is familiar with my collection knows this 😉

Want to give the first lady a bday gift and still get a cool gift too? This just might be your answer…
