Fashion Notes: Melania Trump Gardens in Balmain Flannel With Matching Gloves

The first lady and some school children are expected to courageous the early fall heat on the South Lawn on Friday amid the vegetable plantings made famous by her predecessor, Michelle Obama.

She regularly held events in the garden and wrote her first book, American Grown, about her experience of planting.

Though her cause was noble and she seemed to be enjoying herself handling fresh fruits and vegetables along with a bunch of children in the garden, it was her "Not So Down-To-Earth" high-fashion outfit that many thought is not appropriate for an outdoor activity with the young citizens.

She later gave each child a White House-branded gardening kit.

First Lady Melania Trump spent quality time today with several children from the Girls and Boys Club of Greater Washington, FBR Clubhouse in Ward 8.

Mrs. Obama added more permanent improvements to the garden before the 2016 election, giving it an archway, sitting area and a stone pathway.

Mrs. Trump engaged the children in conversation about the vegetables they like and asked whether they had gardens.

"Nice", Trump said, admiring a large okra.

"Thank you for coming and helping me to harvest", she told the children, who tended to plants including lettuce, radishes, carrots and turnips.

As the group planted and harvested, the White House chefs began hand-washing the newly harvested vegetables in ice water bins, so the vegetables can be eaten Friday evening.

"It was time to harvest/plant so she wanted to be able to include children in the process ... it is such a good educational tool, and what an unbelievable experience for the kids", Stephanie Grisham, Melania Trump's communications director, wrote in an email, according to The Washington Post.
