Olympic Spirit

The First Lady has arrived in London! Mrs. O began the day with a visit to the US Olympic team in east London, wearing a red peplum top paired with a red and white print jacket. From there, Mrs. O moved on to the American Ambassador's Residence, Winfield House, where she hosted 'Let's Move London' joined by David Beckham. For the second appearance, Mrs. O sported white pants paired with a two tone blue athletic top, piped blazer and sneakers.

Update #1: Thanks to reader "lisa" who notes similarity between Mrs. O's red top and the Zara double cloth top, available here in black and white. Thanks to reader "CarolAnn" who has spotted Mrs. O's red and white print blazer as the Thakoon Chevron Print Blazer, available here. Thanks to reader "MDavis" who has spotted Mrs. O's light blue blazer as the Talbots Grace Fit Piped Seersucker Jacket, available here.

Update #2: Adding an "Official White House Photo" from the Let's Move London event. The First Lady wears a great striped top, which reader "Dana" identifies as the Colorblock crewneck sweater from the Gap, available here.


Weekend Chic

The President and First Lady are off to Camp David for the weekend. Mrs. O looked ever so chic leaving the White House, sporting oversize sunglasses and carrying a lime green Lambertson Truex tote in hand. 

Reader stylishgurl has spotted Mrs. O's tunic, which is the Gap Impressionist print draped dress on sale for $29.99, here.


The Garden Grows

The students from Bancroft Elementary School were back at the White House today to help Mrs. O harvest the vegetable garden. The fruits and vegetables were then used to prepare a meal enjoyed by the group.

Mrs. O told the students: "The planting of this garden was one of the first things I wanted to do as first lady at the White House. You helped make this dream a reality.”

Style wise, Mrs. O wore a floral cardigan from Gap (last seen for her lunch with Nancy Reagan) paired with a striped camisole and bright pink pants.


Mrs. O Lunches with Nancy Reagan

Mrs. O lunched with former First Lady Nancy Reagan today. The lunch came after President Mr. O signed a bill creating the Ronald Reagan Centennial Commission, which will honor the 100th anniversary, in 2011, of the late president’s birth.

Mrs. O has fully embraced a summer palette, wearing a striped T-shirt and floral cardigan from Gap (on sale for $24.99!), and white textured pencil skirt. A single strand of pearls and diamond bangles accessorized the look.

Update: Mrs. O wears a Michael Kors, Spring 2009, white lacquered boucle pencil skirt.


Happy Memorial Day!

The Os are off to Camp David for the long weekend and looking ready for the summer season. We are loving Mrs. O's easy, chic head to toe weekend look.

Speaking of which, there's something familiar about Mrs. O's short sleeve cardigan. Might it be from Isaac Mizrahi's Spring collection for Liz Claiborne? (This print is what sparked the thought.) Update: We've confirmed that the cardigan is indeed Liz Claiborne!

And as Gail points out, Mrs. O's dress (particularly from this angle) appears to be a pleated poplin dress by Gap.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day!
