During the event, POTUS was accompanied by his wife, Melania and daughter Ivanka, who both opted for garden party attire. The First Lady stepped out in support of her husband, and was even spotted kissing babies, wearing a Mary Katrantzou multi-color grid print dress ($760, saksfifthavenue.com) that was offset by a thin tan belt at the waist. She kept her accessories to a minimum, and let her long brown tresses fall below the vibrant number’s round neckline.

The ruffled off-the-shoulder style and metallic lace-up flats added to the feminine look.

Lots of fun tonight at the Congressional Picnic,” the mom of three captioned the snap.
