To visit the ruins at Palazzo del Governo today (July 9), Mrs. O opted for a yellow and white floral Liz Claiborne cardigan (she loves her cardis) over a simple yellow tank, which she paired with J. Crew's "Gâteau" cotton sateen skirt. (The trendy tiered piece is already sold out!).
Clearly going by the expression "When in Rome," Mrs. O fastened her cardigan with a beaded brooch by Italian fashion house Moschino.
Mixing American designers with Italian accessories -- the First Lady proves she knows a thing or two about diplomacy!
