First Lady Mrs. O visited Bancroft Elementary School today. Students from the school helped to plant the White House kitchen in March and April; today, following a reception in which the First Lady stressed healthy eating, Mrs. O helped the students plant their own vegetable garden on school grounds.
Lynn Sweet's blog for the Chicago Sun-Times has a full report. Our favorite quotes: "Here at Bancroft, we are big fans of carrots," one of the students read. "We are also fans of the first lady."
For the event, Mrs. O dressed in a floral cotton shirt, worn several times last year (see below). The top was paired with a lemon yellow tissue cardigan (J.Crew perhaps?) and light blue cropped pants.
Mrs. O wore the same blouse a year ago, stopping for an ice cream cone at Prince Pickler's Puckler's (Thanks chimene!) Ice Cream in Eugene, Oregon during May 2008:
Update: Mrs. O wears a blouse by Etro, available (as of 10/18/11) here.
