The First Lady Dons All-American J.Crew To Schmooze With The Brits

MObama's first stop in London today was the Prime Minister's abode, where the First Lady opted for, yes, another classic J.Crew ensemble. Leaning again towards interesting shades of green (or yellow perhaps…does the name Lemongrass ring a bell?), Michelle showed up in a pale mint pencil skirt ($158, available) paired with an embellished cardigan — which you can still see on the J. Crew site, but can't buy as it has already sold out. We think that may be a record. 

But check out the fancy cardi options below that will work brilliantly with any spring green: 

UPDATE: For her meeting with the Queen, Michelle dressed in a simple black and white ensemble by Isabel Toledo and kept warm with a shiny black Jason Wu coat. We recommend this Chaiken sateen coat ($176) or one of our top five favorite trenches for spring if you'd like to mimic the look.
