Let's Move Tour 2012 - Day Two

Friday was a jam packed day for the First Lady, who continued her "Let's Move!" tour with stops in Texas and Florida. Mrs. O met with children from Nancy Moseley Elementary School and members of Bravo's series "Top Chef" at Kleberg Rylie Recreation Center in Dallas, Texas to promote healthy school lunches. Next it was on to Homestead, Florida, where Mrs. O spoke at a town hall on healthy families at Homestead YMCA Family Center.

On the style front: Mrs. O started her day in cheery brights, pairing a red scoop neck top with a blue pencil skirt and thin white belt. In Florida, Mrs. O changed into a plum wrap dress, gathered and tied at the waist.

Style wise, Mrs. O wore a washed rose and tweed dress by Rachel Roy, seen previously here, paired with a black cardigan and Mary Jane pumps. A wool and leather jacket by Alaia, a black handbag and gloves completed the look.


On to Botswana

The First Lady and crew arrived in Gaborone, Botswana today, where they were greeted by traditional dancers. For this stop in her trip through Africa, Mrs. O embraced a bold palette, pairing a Jean Paul Gaultier pant suit with a Tory Burch Kerala reverse wrap belt, available here, at the waist.

After arriving, the First Lady changed into more casual attire to paint a mural with youths at the Botswana-Baylor Adolescent Center. Mrs. O wore a Rachel Roy Sable Leather Ribbed Knit Jacket, seen at least once before, here. Update (6/28): It also appears that the First Lady was wearing Alexander Wang Doodle Print Jeans, available here. How apropos for mural painting!

Finally, Mrs. O was back in ASOS Africa, wearing a beaded collar jacket (on sale here) paired with a Duro Olowu Fall 2010 scarf as she walked with Ian Kirby of Mokolodi Game Reserve prior to a private dinner in Gaborone, Botswana. Thanks to Kemi of Shop Liquorice for the spot.
