Back to Washington

The president and first lady headed back to Washington, D.C. from Honolulu, Hawaii last night. While boarding Air Force One, Mrs. O wore a Merona arrow print dress from Target, previously seen here and here, paired with a cropped black cardigan and sandals. Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!

Update: The first lady wears the Flare sandal from the Fitflop cruise collection, available here.

Another fabulous repeat!

Mrs. T, this is the same dress Mrs. O wore in DECEMBER 2012 to go to Hawaii. I understand she likes repeating outfits and is trying to show America that the economy affects her as well, but c'mon, at least just put on another dress! You just wore this one, Michelle! I love her and I love her style, but I wish she wouldn't repeat so often...

Mrs Obama is sharp and I like that about her. She is preparing everyone for Monday 21 January. I get the feeling that both the day and evening inaugural outfits will be recycled items. If so, I hope she wears the Naeem Khan one shoulder cream dress below.

It's easy to see why this versatile, easy dress is one of Mrs. O's favorites. @Jestina, I love that Naeem Khan, too, but I hope it's a new gown for the Inauguration!

Who are those sandals by? I've been looking for a pair just like that!

I'm really liking her hair pulled back like this -- very fresh and it's nice to see all of her face.

I think this is the best look yet for this dress!

The sandals look like Fit Flops. I have several pair.

For those of us here in DC, the Obamas are on the cover of Washingtonian magazine:

I dont like her face makeup here. She is a lovely woman, but I continue to dislike her eyebrows and eyelashes. The eyebrows are far too thin, and oftentimes, the fake lashes are obviously fake. I think whoever does her makeup can do a much better job making her brows not look so thin and unnatural, and her her lashes not looking so obviously (and sometimes frighteningly) unnatural.

Dressed up or down, they are each others best accessories.
@Emmebelle, she only wore the dress to deplane in Hawaii really early in the morning. Not for the entire flight. There's absolutely no reason she can't wear it again during the two week trip especially since the entire family and their friends had all gone out to dinner and drove straight to the airport to get on the plane. Their flight time had also been moved up an hour earlier, so we don't know exactly what was going on.
She still looks lovely and completely changed the look with the sweater and thong sandals. She is first and foremost a mum and wife on vacation and also has the same stresses that come with making sure everyone is packed and ready to go - homework is finished and ready to be turned in first day back at school - and nobody's forgetting anything at the house in Hawaii.

Her shoes are by Fitflop! Women's Flare from the cruise collection!

This dress looks great, and it is SUCH a relief to have that belt GONE! (See second "here" link from Mrs. T. above.)

She can wear these casual outfits as often as she likes, just as we all do. But I'll bet there's something fab in the works for the Inaugural Balls!

Monday, January 7, 2013 at 2:39 PM | Unregistered CommenterKywstgal

I suspect this is a very comfortable dress and certainly have no problems with her wearing it "coming and going".

Thanks for the tip on the sandals. I went to the link and bought a pair. First time I've been able to afford to follow Mrs. Obama's style. Maybe my husband will take me to Hawaii when the shoes arrive. Repeat out fits are good for travel. I've done it numerous times. Comfort is the key.

Indeed, Breeze, and others. Mrs. O is just sooo herself. Dressed up or down, she knows how go out on the town, or get out of and back in town with comfort and style. Gearing up for Inaugural festivities, I betcha we shall be happily surprised at Mrs. O's sartorial choices ... and I doubt she will repeat for this important occasion, but she certainly has a closet full of excellent possibilities and every right to do as she pleases.

I think Mrs. O will be pleased to show off the unseen work of talented designers either well known or little known. Surely the lucky designers will be the most thrilled observers of us all.

@ Observer, I wish I could respond to your comment about Mrs. Obama's makeup. I know exactly what to say and how to say it but Mrs. T would never allow it. Just wanted you to know.

@Gertrude, I bet you do!
I really wish you'd even try to bring your spiteful, hateful, disrespect of our beautiful and fantastic First Lady to this blog.
We've put up with your disrespect of Mrs Obama for far too long and will no longer indulge, humor or dismiss it.
Not even hiding your sorry self behind the anonymity of the internet will be enough to say you from the fate that will meet you if even dared.
Just try us.

@audrey I was responding to comments made by Observer that I believe were rude. I have never at anytime posted anything unkind about Mrs. Obama.

Saturday, January 12, 2013 at 8:24 PM | Registered Commentergertrude

I just don't get the cropped cardigan thing. They do not look well on taller, full-figured women.

Saturday, January 12, 2013 at 11:22 PM | Unregistered CommenterSarah

@Gertrude, I apologize. Your post came across like you were supportive of and wanted to validate Observers post but in more hateful and offensive words that would not get past the blog owner or moderator.

Sunday, January 13, 2013 at 12:52 AM | Registered CommenterAudrey

@Audrey, Apology accepted .
