As First Lady of the United States, and mother to a beloved son, Melania Trump undoubtedly has plenty to be thankful for.
But the 46-year-old made sure to share the love on Thanksgiving, giving back to some of the men and women who worked tirelessly to help others during in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey in Texas.
Melania and her husband, President Donald Trump, 71, who are spending the holiday at the family’s exclusive Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, took some time out of their day to meet with members of the state’s Coast Guard, joining the hard working service men and women at their station in Riviera Beach in order to serve them lunch.
The first lady dressed very casually for the occasion, donning a pink gingham shirt from J Crew – the same 2012 design that she modeled back in August when she, Donald, and their 11-year-old son Barron returned to the White House from Camp David.
Mother-of-one Melania paired her laidback shirt with a pair of dark trousers, and an official White House baseball cap – eschewing her FLOTUS-printed hat in favor of the new white-trimmed design. She also left her trademark heels at home, opting instead to wear a pair of casual sneakers.
Completing her casual, comfy style, Melania pulled her long brunette locks back into a ponytail, tucking it through the gap in her hat, and wore minimal make-up – just her signature bronzer and nude lip.
Melania looked happy and relaxed as she and the president addressed the dozen or so service men and women, thanking them for their continued efforts – and particularly highlighting the incredible work they did in the days and weeks after Hurricane Harvey.
After speaking with the group, the first couple then served lunch to the men and women, before happily posing for some pictures with the uniform-clad workers.
Taking to her Twitter account, Melania shared several of the pictures, showing herself shaking hands with a number of the Coast Guard members, posing with the whole group, and handing out sandwiches, chips, and other tasty treats.
‘Thrilled to spend part of our Thanksgiving w the local Coast Guard station in Florida,’ she wrote alongside the snaps. ‘Thank you to all members of the military who keep us safe!’
