Malia Obama shows off toned legs in tiny cut-off jean shorts and sleeveless sweater vest

Malia Obama showed off her toned legs in a pair of tiny, cut-off jean shorts as she ran some errands in Los Angeles on Thursday.

The Harvard graduate, 24, left her long limbs on full display as she stopped by 7-Eleven to buy some snacks. The eldest daughter of former President Barack Obama paired the look with a blue, sleeveless, sweater vest and black combat boots.

She kept some of her long, braided, brown locks pulled back in a bun, while the rest fell loosely around her face; she seemed somber as she made her way out of the convenience store by herself, and got into her parked car.

The outing comes days after the 24-year-old – who is currently working on Donald Glover’s upcoming unnamed Amazon show – was seen grabbing dinner with her dad, 61, and younger sister, Sasha, 21.

Barack jetted over to the West Coast to pay his daughters a visit, and the trio ate at the pricey sushi restaurant Hamasaku on Saturday night, where eight-piece sushi rolls cost $50 and specialty rolls go for more than $20 each.

Hamasaku boasts a fusion of traditional Japanese sushi with a taste of California, and features a plethora of dishes containing salmon, lobster, crab, tuna, yellowtail and other tasty seafood. 

While Barack dined with his daughters, his wife, former First Lady Michelle Obama, 58, was across the country in Seneca Falls, New York, being inducted in the National Women’s Hall of Fame.

Both Sasha and Malia are currently living in Los Angeles, with Malia moving there last year, after graduating from Harvard, to pursue a career as a screenwriter.
