Her favorite cause is getting kids active, so it’s no surprise the First Lady showed up to support a soccer team in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil – wearing a sporty-but-stylish vibrant printed skirt, yellow twinset and contrasting turquoise necklace.
The First Family does a little sightseeing, visiting Rio de Janeiro’s famed Christ the Redeemer statue. The first lady perfects her on-the-go outfit by layering a trench over a printed top and sleek pants.
