The former president and FLOTUS made an appearance in Chicago on Wednesday to discuss plans for the Obama Presidential Center.
Michelle wore a gorgeous black and white dress that reminded us of the sleek printed dresses from her White House wardrobe. Barack looked relaxed in a black suit, white shirt and no tie.
At the event, Obama announced that he and Michelle will donate $2 million of their own money toward jobs for Chicago youth this summer.
“We don’t want to wait for a building,” he said. “One of the things that we will be starting this year is Michelle and I personally are going to donate $2 million to our summer jobs programs here in the community, so that right away, young people can get to work and we can start providing opportunities to all of them.”
Since leaving the White House in January, the two have taken time off to travel. They visited Palm Springs right after the inauguration, followed by a trip to Richard Branson’s private escape, Necker Island.
From there, Obama headed to Marlon Brando’s old escape, Tetiaroa, in the South Pacific. He later met up with Michelle and a few of their famous friend (Tom Hanks, Oprah and Bruce Springsteen) to spend some time on billionaire David Geffen’s yacht.
Needless to say, we’re happy they’re back.
