Michelle Obama Wears Floral Frock To Greet Young Students In Florida

MIchelle Obama pulled out one of her favorite Thakoon dresses yesterday when she met with students from John Sexton Elementary School at Tampa International Airport.

You may remember this pretty frock from her appearance on The Jay Leno Show and also an event at the Hilton, both in 2009.

Aside from serving as a shining example of good looks and health in the figure flattering dress (she's clearly sticking to her "Let's Move" campaign), the FLOTUS reminds us that we can (and should) wear florals into the Fall.

So, don't just reserve flowery prints to Spring and Summer--blossoms are just as beautiful (and appropriate) in the Fall and Winter. Simply look for prints in neutrals, dusty hues and autumnal colors. You'll want to stay away from anything that looks too tropical.
