In stark contrast to her polished appearance across Europe last week, Michelle Obama got down and dirty on Thursday while working on the White House Kitchen Garden with fifth grade students.

The first lady wore a blue t-shirt covered by a red windbreaker, black pants (with dirt!) and black velcro sneakers. Her hair was tied back in a loosebun. See below.

Or see what she wore to garden on March 20th.
