Michelle Obama Proves Your Vacation Dress Has Life Beyond the Beach
You know what's coming: those lovely Summer Fridays when you head out of the office early and straight to the beach. Michelle's had recent practice on her getaway with Barack in the Virgin Islands, but the former first lady has returned and is reporting for duty. Michelle attended the AIA Conference on Architecture in Orlando, Florida in a colorblock maxi dress with subtle pleating. The striking Lafayette 148 number originally came with a belt, but Michelle nixed that accessory, perhaps to draw attention to her block heel sandals and silver jewels.
Thanks to a neutral palette of black, white, and khaki, we could easily see this sophisticated number at the office under a cropped sweater. And once your day has wrapped, just trade your power pumps for slides and your work tote for a wicker basket, then head to your weekend destination. You could even wear this maxi over your swimsuit later - it's really that versatile. Scroll for another look, then shop the exact piece along with similar options.
