Who Wears Short Shorts? The First Lady Does, And She Looks Good In Them

August 18, 2009 by SheFindsBlythe
shefinds | Shop

Michelle Obama bared all of her long legs this weekend during the Obama family vacation to the Grand Canyon. She wore (gasp!) short shorts in a city where the average temperature in August is close to 100 degrees. The poor lady was just trying to avoid heat exhaustion, which would have looked much more un-First Lady-like caught on camera if you ask me. Nonetheless, Mrs. O is taking heat for her unprecedented choice of pants – or lack thereof.

Indeed, her outfit (thigh-high shorts and an unbuttoned blouse over a white cami) was a tad more laid back than the fitted sheath dresses and demure floral skirts we’ve been accustomed to seeing her in this summer, but come on guys, it’s hot down there!

It seems that in terms of fashion, Michelle is boldly going where no First Lady has gone before. Compare her to previous Presidential wives and criticize all you like, but seriously, would you have wanted to see Barbara Bush or Nancy Reagan in short shorts?
