What a jam-packed day for the first lady! This morning, First Lady Mrs. O spoke at the the 101st annual NAACP convention in Kansas City, Missouri, focusing on her Let's Move! initiative. For the event, Mrs. O wore a black and white polka dot ensemble -- the top, featuring sheer sleeves, was an inverse print of the coordinating skirt. Both pieces are by Jason Wu.

Update: Mrs. O accessorized her first ensemble of the day with a pair of stunning Mary Esses earrings. Hand-set in 18k yellow gold, the earrings feature dangling, pear-shaped, deep green quartz stones, accented with bezel-set diamonds and baguettes of pale green beryl. A close-up of the earrings is featured below.

Later in the day, Mrs. O ventured south to Panama City Beach, Florida, where she met business and tourism leaders to discuss how the Gulf oil spill has impacted the region. For this appearance, Mrs. O changed into a black blue and white floral top and pants. The drawstring top is from the Thakoon Pre-Spring 2010 collection.

Also yesterday, First Lady Mrs. O was at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building to announce a $45 million commitment by several foundations and private philanthropists to be used as matching funds for social programs chosen by Social Innovation Fund. For more information on the fund and donations, click here.

For her appearance, Mrs. O wore a black dot twist front tank with eyelash trim, paired with a black embroidered dot micro-pleated skirt, both by Jason Wu. The ensemble first debuted last summer, seen here, actually here (thanks Bevi!). Yesterday, Mrs. O paired the ensemble with her signature Alaia belt and a stack of diamond bangles.

The first lady is on the cover of the current issue of USA Weekend, accompanied by an interview focused on her parenting approach. To read more, click here.

Several commenters have noted the similiarity between this magenta pink dress and the teal Jason Wu dress, seen here, which Mrs. O wore in London last Spring. The signature similarity is the tight pleating (or "fluting" as Cathy Horyn described it last year) at the waist. I will investigate and report back. Have a wonderful weekend!

Update: As we thought, the dress is indeed another gorgeous creation by Jason Wu -- a "custom silk faille cartridge pleated dress."

Last evening, First Lady Mrs. O capped a full day by attending a dinner with Mexico's first lady Margarita Zavala in Mexico City. Mrs. O dazzled in a yellow gold sheath dress, accessorized with gold bangles and earrings. The first lady certainly has been on a hot streak in Mexico City!

Update: Mrs. O wore a Jason Wu custom chartreuse satin sheath with inverted pleat bodice detail.

The first lady spent St. Patrick's Day as a participant in Newsweek Magazine's Executive Forum on childhood obesity, hosted at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. The first lady seemed to make a nod to the Irish holiday with her ensemble today, pairing a green top and pumps with a sheer yellow cardigan and blue pencil skirt, accessorized with a silver belt and pearls.

Update #1: The festivities continued, as the first lady hosted a St. Patrick's Day reception at the White House this evening. Below she is pictured alongside Mary Molloy, the wife of Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen.

Update #2: Mrs. O wore a Jason Wu custom kelly green faille sheath with embroidered french knots for the St. Patrick's Day reception.
