Michelle Obama donned a city girl favorite: an all-black ensemble that was not without its share of punched-up accessories in the form of a mini arm party and a versatile leather tote we could see being a trusted go-to bag on the daily. The black top handle Alexander Wang satchel featured a belted padlock and chain detail ($950; shopbop.com).

The former president, meanwhile, couldn’t look happier carrying a specially designed Scout shopping bag ($14; scoutbags.com) in his souped-up dad uniform, which was topped with a buttery brown leather jacket. Both exhibited shades and easy smiles.
