Veterans Day Chic

Mrs. O marked Veterans Day by attending a wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery with her husband. From there, the President and First Lady were off to San Diego, CA, where they attended the NCAA men's college basketball Carrier Classic between the Michigan State Spartans and the North Carolina Tar Heels aboard the flight deck of the USS Carl Vinson. 

On the style front, Mrs. O began the day in a very ladylike but appropriately somber grey lace skirt and coordinating coat, anchored by black knee high boots and a black turtleneck. A statement necklace completed the look. This coat, some may recall, was worn in January 2010 for the funeral of Jean Biden, here. The designer remains unknown (to me at least). In San Diego, the attire was more casual. The First Lady paired a striped top with black pants and patent leather oxfords.  

Update: In the first photo above, First Lady Michelle Obama wears a Miriam Haskell statement necklace of European filigrees, glass pearls, and Swarovski crystals. For those curious about Mrs. O's heart and stripe sweater, it appears to be the Heart intarsia striped wool sweater from Sonia by Sonia Rykiel, available here
