Michelle Obama's Gardening Gear: Purple Converse, 'Hope' Necklace, Giant Sweet Potatoes (PHOTOS)

FLOTUS Michelle Obama welcomed students from Bancroft Elementary School and Kimball Elementary School to harvest vegetables in the garden on the South Lawn of the White House on Thursday afternoon, where she revealed how much the White House Garden cost to plant.

For the occasion, the first lady went with a purple palette: a purple t-shirt and purple cardigan with a purple studded belt, we're guessing by Sacai because it looks like a black studded belt Mrs. Obama often wears. She wore blue pants, and her trusty purple Converse. She accessorized with "Hope" and peace symbol necklaces. Check it out below.
