The former first family has taken another enviable vacation. Michelle and Malia Obama were seen in Miami, Florida, this weekend, enjoying a mother-daughter trip to the beach. They were spotted stepping out of their hotel on Sunday before dining at Prime 112 steakhouse with Tracy Mourning (founder of the organization Honey Shine and wife of basketball star Alonzo Mourning), Page Six reports. Barack and Sasha were missing in action.
Malia wore a playful printed romper from Urban Outfitters with white sneakers and kept her hair up in a ponytail. While her look was carefree and simple, her mother’s outfit was more involved.
The former FLOTUS wore a gray tank top tucked into ultra high-waisted army green trousers and layered a sheer, navy cardigan on top. She maximized on accessories, with oversized sunglasses, gold hoop earrings and a set of layered necklaces. She completed the look with a studded leather bag, a thick headband and strappy black sandals.
Earlier that day, the mother-daughter duo was spotted hitting the beach with friends—including Barack Obama’s former senior adviser Valerie Jarrett—and some Secret Service agents.
The former first lady went for a summery all-white look that included a bikini under a button-down shirt and cut-off shorts. She also wore hoop earrings, sunglasses and a blue bandana for the occasion. Her daughter went with a simpler and cozier beach ensemble that consisted of a tan hoodie, sunglasses and black swimsuit bottoms.
Malia began school at Harvard University last fall, but seemed to be off for the long weekend, according to the school’s website. The whole Obama family helped the 19-year-old move in, but her dad notes it was not an easy transition. “It was a little bit like open-heart surgery,” the former president said.
