Yay! The election season is finally behind us, people have all calmed down just a tad, and that means we can go back to criticizing Shelley’s outfits! Win-win!
First lady Michelle Obama and her daughters are presented with the official White House Christmas Tree in Washington, DC.
The girls look adorable. Let’s get that out of the way first.
As for FLO … oh, dear. This is like every single thing we’ve criticized her for in the last 4 years, all rolled into one outfit. The belted cardigan? Check. The poorly chosen belt at that? Check. The above-the-knees boots worn with a below-the-knees hemline? Check and check.
It’s a cute enough skirt. Very holiday-appropriate without looking too theme-y. A black cardigan makes a fine choice to pair with it, especially for a brief outdoor appearance like this. But the belt is AWFUL and the way she’s got the cardi all shoved over in an attempt to make it look fitted looks terrible; especially with the bottom buttons undone like that. Just, y’know, wear a fitted cardigan if that’s the look you’re going for. And she loves those boots, but we’ve rarely ever seen her deploy them well. A boot that stopped just below the knee would’ve been perfect.
