Michelle Obama's Classic Timeless Style

Helen NurseComment

When planning on this blog post I thought to myself this would be an easy one. Just research FLOTUS fashion and report on my absolute faves. However, as the research began I didn't realize how I had not payed really close attention to the first lady. I mean I see her on television and in print just like anyone else, but I never tracked her every fashion move. Man was I wrong. It took quite a while to decide on which looks are my favorites because she has several moments. I mean with this woman there are far more hits than misses. Her stylist, Meredith Koop, has kept her current but classy and accentuates her curves just enough without being too sexy...classic timeless style is what she embodies. Just my kind of gal! Enjoy this roundup of SOME of my favorite Michelle Obama style sightings.

Where it all began! I was floored when I saw her in this Isabel Toledo ensemble during the first inauguration.

Ponytail just swinging in the air! The red piping on this Tory Burch dress and the piping on the Fendi sandals are both killing me softly. It's the little details that make me swoon. Did you peep the blue nails?
