Michelle and Me

Happy Hump Day all! Hope the week is treating you good so far. I have goodies arriving tomorrow from Mikkat Market, Eloquii and ASOS! Cant wait to see how everything fits and incorporate it into my wardrobe.

I didn’t get to watch the State of the Union address last night because I was working (trust me, I’m paying for it now!). I was dying to see what Michelle Obama wore. As usual she didn’t disappoint. I don’t simply like her…I LOVE her. If I were ever to meet Mrs. Obama the conversation would go something like this:

FLOTUS: Hello Georgette
ME: I love youuuuuuu…*sob*
FLOUTS: Ummm, thank you?
ME: Bwaaaaah…
FLOTUS: Secret Service!!!

Why do I love her so? Because she is an unapologetically strong black woman. She doesn’t cater to the whims of others just to be liked. She supports and loves her husband fiercely all the while raising two well-mannered girls. Even when the media tries to reduce her to some stereotypical caricature, she rises above it.

Mrs. Obama is my style icon. Her taste in clothes is impeccable. She is aware of what looks good on her body. While she follow trends, she doesn’t overdo it. She is a curvy woman who embraces her shape. I like that her style isn’t inaccessible. She will mix J.Crew and Thakoon in a heartbeat!

So today I’m getting my “Michelle on”. I think my dress is  Michelle Obamaish in the mix of  colors. The dress also has a mod feel to it. Any dress with pockets is a friend of mine.    I topped off my look with my faux pearls .

What do you think?  Do you incorporate Mrs. Obama’s style into your own?

    I agree completely with everything you stated. She is a class act. I often admire her personality, her accessibility and realness, and her outfits.

    Once again, nice look.

    Fantastic outfit! I think you hit the nail on the head. You look amazing! So classy and chic.

    I love Michelle Obama too. She has such a classic but still fabulously modern style. I also love her for re-mixing her clothing. Over the years I’ve read the media ragging on her for doing so and it always makes me chuckle. But it is great!
