Ivanka Trump Wears American Flag Pin (Photo)

It looks like first daughter Ivanka Trump is celebrating Independence Day a week early.

The president's eldest daughter smilingly kicked off the work week on June 26 looking unusually patriotic, the Daily Mail reports.

She was spotted wearing an American flag pin on the lapel of her sleeveless military-inspired dress by Altuzarra on her way to work.

Trump finished the look with a bright red lip, strappy block-heel sandals, and a $395 handbag from her collection.

While some admired her appearance, for many, it was just another wrong move by Trump, who is already embroiled in controversy.

"If any normal working woman dressed so unprofessionally, they'd be harassed, approached, leered at, cat called going to work, and also the subject of much gossip at the workplace," commented one Daily Mail reader. "Women wear blazers and other corporate clothes for a reason. Just shows how little she actually knows about 'women who work.'"

"Wow," added another. "What unprofessional attire for the White House. But the point isn't being professional, it's being seen and maximizing attention for one's name and brand. I hope girls and young women don't take this as a clue about how to dress for success in corporate America. People would whisper behind their backs and make unsavory comments. I've witnessed it numerous times and it usually comes from other women. But Ivanka is from a class of people who are untouchable and do not suffer repercussions for their actions."

"I like Ivanka and she always looks so put together," said a third. "However, I agree that these shoes are not appropriate for the office."

It was the second time on June 26 Ivanka, a White House senior adviser, has found herself on the focus of negative attention.

She also upset many after stating she shies away from politics.

"I try to stay out of politics," she told "Fox & Friends" after being asked about her father's Twitter account reports CNN.

"I feel blessed just being part of the ride from day one and before," she added. "But he did something pretty remarkable. But I don't profess to be a political savant."

"What Ivanka is doing here is clear," opined CNN editor Chris Cilliza. "She doesn't want to answer questions about her dad's Twitter feed. There's no "good" answer for her. If she says she doesn't like that he tweets as much as he does, that's a big story. If she says she endorses every one of his tweets, then, well, she has to stand behind every one of his tweets -- which she almost certainly doesn't want to do."
