Have you ever wondered what you’d wear to the State of the Union address?  Of course you have.  Who hasn’t?

Well, you’re in luck – I happen to be an old pro at the subject.  First step: pick a cute, but very professional dress, in the color of your respective political party.  Or, better yet, pick one that combines both party’s colors and you’ll seem so bipartisan – above all the madness, really.

Next, add gold accents and pearls.  It just seems like the American thing to do.

Lastly, finish off your look with some cute pumps, of a modest heel height, but still fashionable.  You can choose navy, red, or nude.  But, let’s be honest – red is the most fun.

Mrs. First Lady, I’m available to give lessons.

  • Jacket – from a suit I’ve had for years
  • Shoes – Macy’s
  • Belt – Rue 21 (it was just for effect – who cares if it’s cheap!  Also, the link is not what I bought, but it’s what I was really looking for)
  • Watch – NY & Co. (close enough)
