Ivanka Trump went sleeveless in a blush-pink, ruffled dress from her namesake brand to meet with military wives.
On Wednesday, Trump joined military spouses in the Roosevelt Room at the White House for a discussion on how families are affected by the demands of deployment. Spouses often have to put their professional and educational goals on hold, and those with careers that require state licensing face unique challenges.
“When a service member is away, their spouse assumes greatly increased responsibilities, and their commitment and dedication is just as critical in the service about this country,” Trump said, according to CNN. “You must often be ready at a moment’s notice to move your families and find new employment. We are committed to supporting you and ensuring that you have every opportunity to find success in our economy.”

The $138 Ivanka Trump embellished crepe shift dress with a ruffled hem is sleeveless, an interesting choice for the first daughter, given the June reports that reporters were barred from the House for wearing sleeveless clothing.
Trump has been busy at the White House this week, despite a call for first family members to step down from their government positions. On Tuesday, MSNBC Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski tweeted to her 654,000 followers, “It’s time for Donald Trump’s family members to get out of the way and let professionals run the White House. Actually, it is way past time.”

The first daughter has been showing off her shoulders lately. On Tuesday, Trump met with small business owners as part of the White House’s “American Dream Week,” wearing a sleeveless, dark-green top, a white midi skirt, Dior sunglasses, and a $1,990 Salvatore Ferragamo Sofia bag.
And on Monday, Trump attended the swearing-in ceremony for Gen. John Kelly as White House chief of staff, wearing a white, sleeveless top with a black-and-white skirt.
