Voyage to Ireland

The Obamas traveled to Lough Erne, Northern Ireland where the president will attend the G-8 summit this week. Leaving the White House on Sunday evening, Mrs. O wore a Tracy Reese Combo Frock in Black and Parchment Gingham, previously seen here, paired with a cropped cardigan and structured ladylike black bag.

Landing in Northern Ireland this morning, Mrs. O had changed ensembles, debuting a Burberry trench coat. First up for the official events: the First Lady joined President Obama for a speech at Waterfront Hall in Belfast, Ireland. For the occasion, Mrs. O wore a matte gold top paired with rust colored pants (seen earlier at Aldergrove International Airport). Layers of pearl and stone necklaces completed the look - a masterful neutral mix!

Later in the day, Mrs. O traveled with her daughters to Dublin, Ireland, where the family visited Trinity College, Old Library, reviewing archives that document the Obamas' Irish ancestry. For this appearance, Mrs. O updated her look by adding a printed, open vest from designer Lela Rose.

On Monday evening, Mrs. O viewed a special performance by the Riverdance company at the historic Gaiety Theatre, joined by Moya Doherty, co-founder of Riverdance, Fionnuala Kenny, the wife of the Taoiseach Enda Kenny, and Sabina Higgins, the wife of the President of Ireland, Michael Higgins. For this appearance, Mrs. O changed once more, wearing an Azalea Silk Crepe top and Navy Merino Wool blazer from Narciso Rodriguez, paired with black pants. Black pumps and earrings from Susan Hanover completed the look.

The ombre top is soooo pretty! I like this "unexpected" outfit on Mrs. Obama. I'm enjoying all the outfits on the trip and the color palette chosen. Thank you Mrs. T for any additional information!

I presented Malia & Sasha with a Cert of Irish Heritage earlier! Great reaction from Sasha "I can prove I'm more Irish than my friends now"

Mrs. O is drowning in her hair these days...
The last outfit I absolutely DISlike. So unflattering. I also feel NO love whatsoever for the printed vest.
The Burberry coat with pants is very sharp though, lovely.

The ombre tunic paired with the jacket and pants look like outfits out of Narciso Rodriguez's Fall/Winter 2013 collection. Specifically:

Everyone of her looks has looked gorgeous, and has had some interesting detail to it. I especially love the Burberry trench. A new designer added to her stable of designers!!

@Bayo Omole Looks like you're definitely right about the tunic...It appears to be look 14 of Fall 2013 Narciso Rodriguez. Interesting choice!

Any ideas on the gold top Mrs. O wore underneath the trench coat and vest? I just love it!
