Michelle Obama is a style icon not merely because she looks great in designer clothes. We have come to love the First Lady because she recycles her great outfits like any regular woman would, and because she often wears clothing regular women can afford from retailers like the Gap.

Recently we were delighted to see one of Obama's inexpensive standbys getting a lot of use. She wore the same arrow-printed dress from Target's exclusive Merona brand twice on vacation in Hawaii. We spotted her wearing the pink and black sleeveless dress on December 22, 2012 (left photo) deplaning Air Force One in Honolulu and again on January 5, 2013 (right photo) as she boarded the plane to return to Washington D.C.

If Michelle Obama is wearing the same dress twice on vacation, we are definitely going to start packing light. There's no need to cram loads of wardrobe options into an overstuffed suitcase when you can look this good over and over again in the same dress.
