In the White House, Michelle Obama’s style was polished and preppy. In the real world, it’s bold and sexy.

The former first lady was photographed Friday boarding a yacht in Mallorca, Spain, wearing a cropped white camisole with a blue-and-white, bird-print wrap skirt. She was barefoot and carried a $60 Madewell straw tote.

The day before, Obama was seen wearing a sports bra, purple leggings, and a black, sleeveless top that flashed a view of her torso, for a hike around the island.

In her post-White House life, Michelle has been having fun with fashion. In May during a trip to Siena, Tuscany, she bared her shoulders, biceps, and back in a white frilly top that she paired with olive pants. Also on that trip, she wore a $397 bright pink one-shoulder Teija top, ripped white jeans, and sandals, and she carried a Jimmy Choo bag.

And in June, when Barack and Michelle jetted off to Bali with 18-year-old Malia and 16-year-old Sasha, Michelle looked laid-back in a long white top and black leggings.

Though Barack was not photographed with Michelle on their Labor Day trip, the former first couple are taking a well-deserved break after helping Malia move into her freshman dorm at Harvard University.

Michelle is scheduled to speak at a September 21 tech conference in Salt Lake City, where her smarts — and style — will undoubtedly shine.
