Michelle Obama on Planning Her Wardrobe and Date Nights
The First Lady talks to Matt Lauer about life in the White House.
Even the First Lady and the President need a date night from time to time. Michelle Obama recently sat down with Matt Lauer for a Today Show interview, where she described just what her and her husband do to get some quality time together.
“Surprisingly here [at the White House] we have more time together than we have in years because the pace of a campaign is ridiculous,” Michelle says. “He’s home by 6:30….We don’t get to do our date nights as much because it just causes more commotion….[but] this [motioning to the White House] is a nice spot. The chef is great….We weren’t going out kind of people, we’re the kind of folks who go to kids games and have friends over and watch movies. Our lives are very conducive to this because we just are sort of boring anyway. So we’ll have movie night where Barack and I will go down and watch a movie, so we find a way.”
The Obamas think they’re boring? Well certainly Michelle can’t really believe that, since her wardrobe is so not boring. She wears a Rachel Roy dress and pearls for the interview, but she admits she has help with her outfit choices.
“[I] have folks who are going to get [my] clothes ready,” Michelle says, “so I’ll figure out what I’m going to wear over the course of a week or two even, so that I don’t have to think about it….so I don’t think that much about the response to it. I’ve learned to wear what I like and to wear what’s comfortable.”
A team of personal stylists and your husband coming home at 6:30 every night? Life is good for Michelle Obama. (Huffington Post)
