Honoring Veterans

To honor Veterans Day, the First Lady attended a ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery. For the ceremony, Mrs. O wore a black wool Burberry coat with double-breasted closure paired with knee-high black boots.

On Thursday, the First Lady gave the keynote address to attendees of the Disney Veterans Institute jobs forum in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. For the event, Mrs. O wore a black short sleeve dress with pink detailing at the neckline. This dress looks familiar, but I can't quite put my finger on it. Does anyone recall where we've seen it before?

Update: Thanks to reader Parker, who found the dress: Narciso Rodriguez from 2009 and 2010, here.


Voyage to Ireland

The Obamas traveled to Lough Erne, Northern Ireland where the president will attend the G-8 summit this week. Leaving the White House on Sunday evening, Mrs. O wore a Tracy Reese Combo Frock in Black and Parchment Gingham, previously seen here, paired with a cropped cardigan and structured ladylike black bag.

Landing in Northern Ireland this morning, Mrs. O had changed ensembles, debuting a Burberry trench coat. First up for the official events: the First Lady joined President Obama for a speech at Waterfront Hall in Belfast, Ireland. For the occasion, Mrs. O wore a matte gold top paired with rust colored pants (seen earlier at Aldergrove International Airport). Layers of pearl and stone necklaces completed the look - a masterful neutral mix!

Later in the day, Mrs. O traveled with her daughters to Dublin, Ireland, where the family visited Trinity College, Old Library, reviewing archives that document the Obamas' Irish ancestry. For this appearance, Mrs. O updated her look by adding a printed, open vest from designer Lela Rose.

On Monday evening, Mrs. O viewed a special performance by the Riverdance company at the historic Gaiety Theatre, joined by Moya Doherty, co-founder of Riverdance, Fionnuala Kenny, the wife of the Taoiseach Enda Kenny, and Sabina Higgins, the wife of the President of Ireland, Michael Higgins. For this appearance, Mrs. O changed once more, wearing an Azalea Silk Crepe top and Navy Merino Wool blazer from Narciso Rodriguez, paired with black pants. Black pumps and earrings from Susan Hanover completed the look.
