The first lady obviously took inspiration from her surroundings on her husband’s island, paying a nod to the ocean’s hues in her wrap dress. And with her footwear, she played up the enviable winter weather that’s perfect for wearing sandals.
Standing alongside President Obama, Michelle thanked service members and their families at the Marine Corps base in Kaneohe Bay in Jimmy Choo’s “Wallace” flats. The bohemian sandals are embellished with four lightweight gold chains that drape over the foot. A simple gold buckle fastening is fixed to the ankle strap.
The luxury label’s footwear originally retailed for $595, but it’s on sale for $298 online.
The couple arrived in Honolulu on Dec. 18 with their daughters, Malia and Sasha, for their annual family getaway.
Leaving frosty Washington, D.C., behind for warmer temperatures, Malia embraced the weather in a pair of sleek Urban Outfitters clog sandals when she stepped off Air Force One.
Just like her mother, Malia is a bargain shopper, too.
Urban Outfitters’ tan leather “Rita” clogs feature a peep-toe profile with a buckled ankle strap and a 3.5-inch wooden heel. The shoes originally retailed for $59 but are on sale for around $20 on the retailer’s website.
