Mrs. O in Ann Taylor

Amidst the DNC festivities last evening, the first lady was interviewed by several of the major news networks. For the appearances, Mrs. O wore an Ann Taylor wool dress in a vibrant blue adorned with an Alexis Bittar elongated marquis pin. A similar version of the dress, in black, is available on AnnTaylor.com, here. Lovely!

Mint and Pink

The First Lady was in Virginia to meet Democratic supporters today. While making campaign stops, Mrs. O visited Mom's Apple Pie Company in Occoquan, where young Sydney Trapp treated the First Lady to a bit of violin. So sweet!

On a style note, Mrs. O paired a highlighter pink pencil skirt with a mint green sleeveless top and statement pearl necklace. A structured handbag and kitten heels completed the ladylike summer look. Lovely!

Update #1: Reader mincey observes that Mrs. O's bag is similar to a Jason Wu for Target style, sold out online but available on eBay here. Update #2: Mrs. O wears the Ann Taylor Jewel Neck Shell in Surf Green, available here. On the jewelry front, Mrs. O wears a Colorful Freshwater Pearl Torsade Necklace by Pearl Collective


Style at Center Court

The First Lady traveled to North Carolina yesterday for a "Let's Move" promotion held between games of the CIAA basketball tournament in Charlotte. Above, Mrs. O runs onto court with Senator Kay Hagan. For the appearance, Mrs. O wore a crisp white blouse, black pants and silver sneakers, with a stack of Jordan Alexander bracelets to complete the look.

Earlier in the day, when arriving at Raleigh-Durham International Airport, Mrs. O was seen wearing her Ann Taylor Promenade Coat, while greeting Military Spouse of the Year, Bianca Strzalkowski.


Neon Brights

The First Lady appeared at a Let's Move event in Inglewood, California today to celebrate the future site of a Northgate Gonzalez Market. On the style front, Mrs. O layered neon brights, channeling another key color trend of the season!

Update #1: While the first lady's coat takes on a neon quality in the photo above, it's a true orange in others. Some have noted its similarity to the Ann Taylor Promenade Coat in Salsa Picante. What do you think? One thing we can say for sure: Paired with her top and trench, Mrs. O wears Michael Kors sapphire double face stretch wool crepe pants from the designer's Fall 2010 collection.

Update #2: Good eye ladies! Ann Taylor has confirmed via Twitter that the First Lady wears the Promenade Coat. This is the first time per my records that Mrs. O has worn Ann Taylor.
