Michelle Obama stepped out in New York City for an event in the perfect seasonal outfit. Although, what else is new? The former FLOTUS has consistently maintained her signature modest, carefree style since leaving her post at the White House, showing off her fair share of breezy dresses on the regular, just like this white knee-length design.

Michelle styled the crisp number with brown leather cork wedges, oversize tortoise sunglasses, and her sparkling engagement ring, but the obvious statement here was her Prada messenger bag, which she detached from the top handle and replaced with a shoulder strap, woven with a navy and gold scarf for extra oomph. How cool is she?

I am not just collecting scarves to tie onto all of my purses now, but I'm also shopping for a thin, lightweight satchel like this one to keep getting around easy for the rest of the Summer. Oh, and if, for whatever reason, you believe that a white bag is only appropriate for warm weather, just take my word for it — a shape that's as sophisticated as this one is timeless and the easy answer to any outfit, from the most casual to the extra fancy.
