Becoming

I am reading Michelle Obama’s book, Becoming. I can’t wait to finish it and share my review with you! I’m hoping to finish the book on my departure and return flights to the west coast.

That would give me about 4-5 hours of uninterrupted reading time on both flights.

Her book is one of those that you don’t want to put down once you get started. It’s an easy read because it feels like Michelle is right there talking with you and telling her story.

I love books where I feel like I have connected with the author. Like I really know her and we are good girlfriends by the end!

Influencer

Another book I recently read where I felt this same way was Brittany Hennessy’s book, Influencer.

A must read if you are a blogger or influencer, or maybe aspiring to become one.

I have talked with Brittany one-on-one and I told her I felt like we were girls because of her down to earth tone and the girlfriend advice she gives in her book.

Brittany in real life is everything wonderful that I expected after reading her amazing book. Now I’m just waiting on my real-life conversation with Michelle Obama! Ha Ha…The audacity of my hope!

My First Lady Style

I’ve always been inspired by Mrs. Obama, which is why I picked this dress for a speaking engagement I recently had for a Women’s EmpowHerment luncheon.

I call this look my “First Lady” style!

What was serendipitous is the venue where I was speaking is a historic home turned event facility. Appropriately named, The First Lady of Suffolk!

This dress had me at first sight after seeing Michelle Obama in a similar style.

This fit and flare is a stretchy material, which is good because I am teetering in between a size XS and Small. (You know I chose the size XS!)

If you don’t like your sleeves tight, I would suggest ordering a size up.

This retro dress is available on SheIn.com in at least a dozen other colors, including a sparkly glitter style.

I wanted a classic black dress with a dash of whimsy, so I chose this one with the geographic lines.

To accessorize, I added a wraparound belt, ankle socks with heels (like Michelle did!) and large statement earrings. I was pleased with the look. What do you think?
