MObama at the US Open… in an open kind of shirt

My girl MObama stopped by the US Open yesterday, which excited me beyond belief when I saw her on my TV screen waving at the camera. From the brief shot, I could tell she was wearing some sort of red along with an armful of fun bangles. Cute, for sure.

But when I found a pic online of her full ensemble, I was saddened to find that it looked like this:

It’s no secret that I adore the First Lady’s style, however, this was the first time I stopped and thought… whu?

The red on red is quite chic, and I love the mixing of a pattern in there somewhere. That said, I just don’t understand what’s going on with the layers. Is she wearing the top backwards? Bottom line, I give her A+ for color choice and risk-taking, but the result is sadly a fail. C’mon Michelle!

What do you think of the First Lady’s US Open look? Avant-garde, or just plain messy?

    Well, I see your point, Bryn. Definitely not polished, but it is fun and funky – in a way. Sometimes I try to channel my inner teenager too, and can’t quite pull it off, so I have some empathy. Definitely not her best look, but I like the fact she is not style-perfect all the time. OK to just have fun and take a style-chance occasionally.

      Excellent points, Maris! I too love that she’s not style-perfect all the time. It definitely makes her more relatable. She’s still number one in my book, despite the backwards shirt experiment!
