Feel flirty in a floral print blouse like Sophie
It looks like Michelle Obama has friends in high places. She was spotted in Canada with the Prime Minister's wife Sophie Grégoire Trudeau and while the former First Lady opted for a classic frock, Sophie went with a patterned blouse and black trousers.
Her top is from H&M and it's a part of their collaboration with British designer, Erdem. The label is known for their feminine floral pieces and this blouse is no exception.
We love the ladylike ruffles and lace as well as the flirty bow at the neck. Team it with a pleated black skirt and knee high boots and you can't go wrong!
It's no surprise that this popular piece is now sold out, but we've got plenty of alternatives in the edit below with styles starting at less than $30.

The ladies outing followed Obama's first solo speaking engagement in Toronto
It's clear she was referring to the President - who, aside from making a name as a business mogul and leader in the Oval Office, is notorious for being a social media 'connoisseur'.
She retracted attention from the idea, though, and said: 'What's up with you young people? This tweetin' and snapchattin' ... this is generationally something that I just don't understand.
'Would you take your journal, your diary and open it up in the center of the town square and let people just read it? Just come up and go 'Ooh, this is how you felt? About your mother?,' Obama asked.
She also talked about the importance of proper grammar and factuality when it comes to making influential statements.

The mother-of-two touched base on other vital topics such as female empowerment, mental health and diversity.
Following the speaking event, Obama and?Trudeau took an afternoon stroll through the streets of Toronto.
The high-profile pair were captured holding shopping bags as they made their way to Portland Street's swanky Gusto 101 eatery for?Italian.
It seems the two have become extremely close as of late - as they were spotted together back in 2016 smiling and embracing one another during?Trudeau's first-ever visit to the United States.

The ladies joked they were 'soulmates' as they are both care about the same issues and are married to political powerhouses
And according to blogTo, they even 'joked about being soulmates' as both are political spouses and strong advocates for young girls and women around the world.
During last year's event, the power duo came together at the U.S. Institute for Peace to speak on the topic.
Obama addressed her concern regarding the whopping 62million girls who were not enrolled in an education program.
'I know we can get the world united around this issue and change the fate of these 62 million girls forever ... We can do this,'?Obama said in the statement.

Trudeau chimed in to complete the remarks about the topic she believes should be one of top priority.
'Canada knows that for a society to be prosperous and more just and more peaceful, women and girls must be educated,' the?Quebec-born public speaker added.
'And an educated young girl becomes an educated mother, mentor or friend, professional.
'That makes for an educated society and an education makes for a more peaceful and just place to be and to grow in.'
