The president and first lady participated in the National Day of Service today, volunteering at Burrville Elementary School in Washington, D.C. Pictured above, the Obamas were joined by City Year Executive Director Jeff Franco and City Year employee Sheri Fisher to stain a bookshelf.
After the project, the president and first lady gave brief remarks to volunteers. Mrs. Obama closed, saying, "So for all the young people ... as Barack says, we’re passing the baton onto you all. So the goal is, is that as you make your way through life, who are you pulling up behind you? And as long as you’re pulling somebody up behind you, you’re doing the right thing."
Last but not least, the fashion front: Mrs. O kept her look casual, wearing a purple and black geometric print top, paired with black pants, boots - and, of course, those fabulous new bangs!
Update: Mrs. O wears a top by plenty by Tracy Reese.
