But there was another look that she shared in her Instagram Story on Tuesday that we also couldn’t stop swooning over: a black and ivory figure-flattering jumpsuit, which she teamed with black pumps as she and Barack chatted with students at the University of Chicago.

"Barack and I loved getting to know our newest class of @obamafoundation Scholars at @uchicago!", she captioned the photo, in which the former POTUS could be seen walking behind her. 

Following her appearances, Michelle shared a heartfelt message on Instagram with fans about what it meant to her and Barack to build their Presidential Center in Chicago in Jackson Park.

"No matter what I’ve accomplished, who I’ve met or where I’ve gone, one of the greatest honors of my life is being a proud Chicagoan—a daughter of the South Side. I still lead with that descriptor. I wear it boldly and proudly," she said in the caption of the post, which showed her standing behind a clear podium and breaking ground with Barack.

"So when it came time to decide where we’d build the Obama Presidential Center, Barack and I knew the South Side of Chicago was where we wanted it to be. This investment will help make the neighborhood we call home a destination for the entire world. But more importantly, it will be a vital resource for the people who live here."

"This center will be a place where folks can find work, and where kids can learn, grow, and envision bigger lives for themselves. And we hope it’ll be a place that can invigorate the existing restaurants, small businesses, neighborhood organizations, schools, and churches that are the lifeblood of this community."

"That’s what this is about for us—giving a little something back to the people and place we both love so much. We can’t wait to see it come to life."
