The First Lady Gets "Fashionably Responsible" in the Garden

We love that the First Lady joined White House chefs and kids from a local elementary school today as ground was broken on the first White House Kitchen Garden on the South Lawn.

This project will provide fresh grown, organic produce and herbs for the White House Kitchen as well as donations to Miriam's Kitchen, a local DC soup kitchen.

And we can't help but mention how fabulous Mrs. Obama looked with her belted cowl sweaterdress, tights, and slick boots. Talk about being "Fashionably Responsible"...the First Lady set just the right tone as she broke ground and talked up the health benefits of fresh produce (not to mention eating local!)

Check out the SPUN Cowl Neck Dress in the Shop at Fashion Ethic for a similar style in organic cotton for just $68.
