It’s back-to-school time for Malia Obama, who moved into her new Harvard dorm with some help from her parents earlier this week.

And it looks like she’s spending orientation week just like any other college freshman would — getting to know her fellow classmates and exploring the Ivy League’s campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

From the photos we’ve seen so far, it’s also pretty clear that even though she’s only been at Harvard for a few days, Obama’s college style is on point. Where we’re used to seeing her dressed up for appearances with her former-president father, her casual fashion choices are clearly dictated by comfort. For proof, look no further than her cool footwear.

A day after she officially started college life, Obama paired her oversized Alexander Wang T-shirt with white Reebok sneakers.

Later that day, she changed into casual denim shorts, a tank top, and buckled leather sandals similar to these.
