The former educator surprised National Guardsmen outside of the Capitol today with a batch of fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies, thanking them for their hard work these past few weeks.

For footwear, Jill traded her usual pumps out for a warmer pair of boots in the chilly Washington D.C. weather. The round-toe boots featured smooth mocha brown suede uppers with a slouchy design and a sturdy block heel.

Later in the day, the first lady also stopped by the Whitman-Walker Health center in town to meet with  Kim Thiboldeaux, CEO of the Cancer Support Community, and Naseema Shafi, CEO of Whitman-Walker Health. At the visit, Jill revealed the chic white dress of her look, matching the three-quarter sleeve number to gold layered necklaces and a matching bracelet.

When it comes to shoes, Dr. Biden has always been a fan of slingback silhouettes, which are known for their ease of wear thanks to straps around the bank of the ankle. Her go-to brands include Dior, Jimmy Choo and Prada. She also is known for her love of running and in the past has preferred workout-ready footwear from running brand On as well as her newfound love for Stuart Weitzman’s standout Vote boots. When it comes to apparel, the first lady’s official style taps a mix of well-known labels like Brandon Maxwell as well as supports smaller American brands like Jonathan Cohen and Markarian to name a few.
