Michelle Obama Celebrates Her Birthday With a Double Rainbow and Waterproof Sneakers

It’s Michelle Obama’s birthday today.

The former first lady is now 56 year old and celebrating with a powerful, introspective message. She shared a photo of herself alongside friends on a hike in front of a picturesque scene of roaring hills and a double rainbow.

For her athleisure-chic ensemble, the “Becoming” author chose a long gray tank, black cropped leggings and a pair of sneakers by the On brand. The waterproof Cloudventure sneakers feature a black outsole, coral accents, Missiongrip outsole for maximum traction and Zero Gravity Cloud cushioning for shock and impact absorption.

In her caption, she wrote: “With the girls off at college, this birthday brings with it a new perspective — a fresh breath —along my journey. I’m looking forward to devoting some quality time to my friends and to myself — and of course, to that husband of mine, too.”
