The First Lady practiced what she preaches constantly about staying healthy with two days of activity at the White House.

On Wednesday, Michelle Obama harvested vegetables from the White House kitchen garden with a group of children. The fall event, which saw the group digging in the dirt on a sun-drenched day, is part of the Let's Move! initiative.

Michelle got moving in a perfect autumn outfit, pairing black pants with a cherry tan and orange argyle sweater from (where else?) J. Crew.

Today Mrs. O changed into more athletic clothes, hitting the lawn with a group of soccer-playing youngsters... and Bo! Members of the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team showed up to teach a Let's Move! soccer clinic and Michelle brought the First Pup (the other POTUS) along to get some exercise.

FLOTUS wore what look like Converse All-Stars (they're definitely not her controversial Lanvin sneaks) paired with brown capris and a black and teal printed tee by Monrow.

While the outfit wasn't too surprising, Michelle's soccer skills were! We were not in attendance, but from the look of it the First Lady has quite the strong kick.

But probably not as strong as Bo's.
