Bus Tours and Baseball

Wednesday was another jam-packed day for the First Lady, who started out with an appearance alongside the President at Joint Base Langley-Eustis in Hampton, VA for the final day of his bus tour. While the President pitched his Job's Act, Mrs. O had good news of her own. The First Lady announced that the American Logistics Association (ALA) and their 270 affiliate companies have committed to hiring 25,000 veterans and military spouses by the end of 2013 -- certainly a big win for the Joining Forces effort!

After a quick stop at a pumpkin patch, the First Lady was off to St. Louis to attend Game 1 of the World Series between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Texas Rangers. There, Mrs. O greeted veterans in a program sponsored by Major League Baseball and Joining Forces. Mrs. O and Dr. B also made an on field appearance, joined by Marine Lance Corporal James Sperry and his daughter Hannah for the national anthem. 

On a style note, Mrs. O rewore a few pieces seen earlier this year, including a Reed Krakoff blazer and Marc by Marc Jacobs sweater, both seen here.

Update: Bonus video!


Mrs. O Charms Cape Town

Mrs. O was in Cape Town, South Africa today, where she answered student questions at the University of Cape Town, followed by a visit to the District 6 Museum.

The First Lady's outfit du jour includes a Reed Krakoff coated boucle blazer, last seen here, paired with navy trousers and a printed top Duro Olowu top (see reader Kemi's analysis here). Nava Zahavi earrings accessorized the look.

Update: One more photo from later in the day, as Mrs. O participated in activities to raise awareness for HIV prevention at Cape Town Stadium. It's tempting to re-title this post 'Having a Ball'!

The President and First Lady attended the Pritzker Architecture Prize ceremony at Andrew Mellon Auditorium in Washington, DC this evening. This year's winner is Portuguese architect Eduardo Souto de Moura.

For the event, Mrs. O wore a long blue halter gown, which appears to be Reed Krakoff Spring 2011, seen here. Confirmation to follow, and thanks to reader Bayo for the excellent spot. (Update: Indeed, the gown is Reed Krakoff.) One can't help but wonder if perhaps the First Lady was drawn to the gown for its distinctive architectural lines, perfectly fitting for the occasion.

Mom-in-Chief Chic

Even a parent-teacher conference brings some fashion excitement! Yesterday, Mrs. O was spotted returning from a parent-teacher conference at Sidwell Friends school carrying a teal leather Ribbon tote by Reed Krakoff. Tres chic.
