Our Girls: Hillary and Michelle

I had the coolest opportunity last Thursday, and it was to hear the First Lady, Michelle Obama and presidential nominee/former first lady Hillary Clinton speak at a rally at Wake Forest University.
It was the coolest thing and I couldn't pass up the opportunity.
Regardless of my political views or anyone's it was a once in a lifetime opportunity!
Originally the rally was supposed to be on the quad but because of the intended big turnout and weather it was moved to our basketball stadium off campus. The Clinton campaign payed for our buses to go to the event and everything.
We were supposed to sit in designated student seats but because the stadium was packed with students, locals and media my friends and I actually got to stand on the floor behind Hillary and Michelle. 
It was so cool. We were literally less than 20 feet from them.
I joked that we were so close we could read the teleprompter and see Michelle's nail polish
It was a really good rally.
There was some good dance music, the crowd did a "wave" around the stadium, Hillary and Michelle  had very staged hugs, it was fun!
They were both great presenters and I really enjoyed listening to them.
After it was all over (3 and a half hours of standing) I had to stand for another hour and wait for the buses to take us back to campus. All my friends got on the first bus, and apparently because I am not "aggressive enough" I had to wait literally an hour for the second round of buses...
But in that time, some of my guy friends and I were interviewed by US News & World. So that was cool and they were very interested in my opinions about the rally and both presidential candidates considering I am a political science major.
It was fun and they said they would send me a link when the video is up online!

I had to wear a cute, professional and appropriate rally outfit.
I probably shouldn't have worn red pants because I didn't want someone to think I was a Republican at a Democratic rally but hey America is RED, white and blue....
So whatever.
I would also like to say that my girl Michelle and I had very similar shirts on.....
Go us!

Shirt: H&M black and white floral printed flowy shirt with bell sleeves
Earrings: Tory Burch double pearl earrings (similar)
Shoes: Tory Burch black/gold Reva flats
