Michelle Obama Makes St. Patrick's Statement With Green Suede Boots (PHOTOS)

On Tuesday Michelle Obama met with students from the YouthBuild program, where she spoke about her own and President Obama's experiences with community service. Read more about the visit here.

The first lady was clearly feeling the St. Patrick's Day spirit, having already dyed the fountains on the north and south lawns of the White House green. She took her celebration one step (get it?) further by wearing green suede boots. The boots were also lined with fur--Mrs. Obama's press office tells us it is faux. She wore the festive footwear with gray slacks and a lime-colored, possibly mohair sweater set.
