Michelle and Barack Obama yesterday shared a slideshow of photos on their Instagram account celebrating their 30th anniversary with their feet in the sand. The post’s caption reads, “Happy birthday to the man I love! It’s been an adventure for the past 30 years, and I’m grateful to have you by my side. Here’s to life together. Love you , @BarackObama!

The photos saw Michelle and her husband dressed in casual clothes with comfortable, clean shoes. Michelle sported a white cropped sleeveless t-shirt, which she wore layered under a cream cardigan with a long cape-like back and swirled white detailing. The set’s pants were high-waisted and adorned with the same swirling white pattern. The former first lady of the United States donned a silky scarf and fitted her face with chunky black sunglasses.

With his shoes off and in hand, the author was able to show off his white canvas kicks. The simple shoe differed from her husband’s, the bottom with thick rubber soles, on a sturdy white canvas with white laces.

The former President of the United States wore khaki pants, which he rolled up for fear of an impending wave, with the political figure pairing him with a black jacket and green and white Adidas Stan Smith sneakers with green details .

When it comes to shoes, Michelle tends to lean towards bold, preppy shoes centered around whimsical patterns or vibrant colors. The podcast host often wears glamorous silhouettes from Sophia Webster, Jimmy Choo, Stuart Weitzman, Christopher John Rogers and Balenciaga. Obama often incorporates affordable styles from a wide range of brands like Zara and Converse. When not on duty, she likely dons sneakers, sandals, and pointed flats.
