Ivanka Trump was seen visiting her mother Ivana Trump with a belated birthday gift on Thursday after returning to New York City for the first time sin
The former First Daughter, who has been living in Miami, Florida, with her family, was running errands when she stopped by her 72-year-old mother’s Upper East Side townhouse to give her a gift after missing her birthday on February 20.
Ivanka, 39, was dressed casually in a black turtleneck and black cropped skinny jeans that she paired with an open chambray button-up shirt for an extra layer of warmth and comfy black flats.

Outfit of the day: The former First Daughter was dressed casually in a chambray shirt paired with a black turtleneck and skinny jeans
Her long blonde hair was center-parted and loose around her shoulders. It was a sunny day in Manhattan, so she topped off her look with black-frame sunglasses.
Ivanka was seen leaving her apartment building with her Secret Service detail in tow before heading to a doctor’s office.
The born and bred New Yorker looked happy to be back on her home turf and was seen carrying today’s edition of The New York Post, her iPhone, and a face mask while walking around with one of her Secret Service agents.
While he was wearing a mask, hers was in her hand.
It’s unclear when Ivanka arrived in New York and whether she followed the state’s COVID-19 restrictions. She and her husband Jared Kushner, 40, were seen holding hands on the beach in Miami just four days ago.
New York’s COVID-19 travel restrictions require all travelers to the state who want to opt out of the mandatory 10-day quarantine to produce a negative test at least three days before arrival.

They still must quarantine for three days before taking a second COVID-test. If both tests are negative, they can exit quarantine early.
Ivanka was out and about on Thursday, the day after she was spotted in the city, and while it’s possible she was getting a COVID-19 test when she stopped by the doctor’s office, she didn’t go straight home after.
The mother of three was later seen taking a carefully wrapped present to her mother Ivana’s townhouse, where she stayed for about an hour.
She had on a blue face mask when she walked into her mom’s home, but it was off when she left.

She was likely listening to music or a podcast as she had a pair of earbud headphones in her ears and her iPhone in her hand.
Did she? According to official guidelines, Ivanka should have taken a COVID-19 test within three days of her departure and another one on her fourth day of quarantine
Feeling lax: Ivanka didn’t have a mask on when she climbed into the backseat her Secret Service SUV
Protected: Both of her Secret Service agents had on mask while helping her into the SUV
Careful with mom: Ivanka wore a tie-dye mask when she went to visit her mother Ivana, who turned 72 on February 20
Adjustments: Ivanka also had her mask on while in the SUV, though it’s unclear at what point she removed it
The mother of three, who has taken on a more casual appearance since leaving her role as a White House senior adviser, topped off her outfit with a pair of black flats — a far cry from the heels she used to wear in Washington, D.C.
When she lifted her arm to hold her coat closed, she exposed the red string bracelet that she almost always wears on her left wrist.
Though she hasn’t spoken about the purpose of the string, it does bear a resemblance to the type of red string that Kabbalah practitioners wear to ward off the ‘evil eye.’
Ivanka was escorted by two Secret Service vehicles and was seen getting dropped off in front of the building.
She said hello to the doorman before making her way inside.
On the same day, Ivanka’s younger brother Eric Trump, 37, and his wife Lara, 38, took their mother Ivana to lunch.

New life: Ivanka and her family have relocated to Florida. They’ve been living in Arte Surfside, one of Miami’s most exclusive buildings, and she is often seen hanging out on the balcony
They dined at the upscale Italian eatery Altesi Ristorante, one of her favorite restaurants on the Upper East Side, before walking her back to her townhouse.
Eric was the only one who wore a mask when they left the restaurant, with his mother, Lara, and one of their Secret Service agents opting to forgo the protective face covering while strolling through the crowded city streets
It’s unclear if Ivanka was in town when she missed out on the family lunch.
The visit to Trump Tower marked Ivanka’s first time returning to the city since she left Washington, D.C. and that may be for good reason.
Many believe that Ivanka and her husband Jared will no longer be welcome in the same elite social circles they once ran in before her father became president.
Her close friend Georgina Bloomberg recently admitted that it would be ‘difficult’ for the couple to return to Manhattan life.
‘I think right now it’ll be a bit difficult for them coming back, because obviously this is something that is still very fresh and stoking everybody’s fire,’ she told the Daily Beast in November.

Georgina hopes that in the future people ‘will hopefully welcome them back’ — however, many reports have suggested that Ivanka and Jared may well be ‘shunned’ by the high-powered New Yorkers they once called friends.
It’s unclear if Ivanka’s husband and their three children — Arabella, Joseph, and Theodore — have returned to the city with.
The Trump-Kushner family is living in Miami after moving into Arte Surfside, one of the most expensive complexes in the neighborhood, with an average rental price of nearly $47,000 per month.
Its penthouse sold for $33 million to an unnamed private equity executive from New York last month.
Since moving to the lavish condo building, which is considered to be one of Miami’s most sought-after oceanfront properties, the former senior White House adviser has been seen kicking back and relaxing in the outdoor space on many an occasion.
But the apartment appears to have been a bit more public than she’s used to, and last week she was seen testing out special privacy screens for the glass railing of her large balcony.

Ivanka reviewed different options alongside two workers who had stuck up several sample panels to demonstrate their effectiveness.
Dressed in a white polo shirt and sporty mini skirt, it looked as though she had just come from a morning spent playing tennis.
After greeting the two glass experts, she put on a pink-and-white face mask and stood back as they explained how the privacy coating works, talking her through the different samples that they had stuck onto her balcony railing.
Ivanka was joined on the balcony by the family’s fluffy white dog Winter, who strolled around by her feet as she carried out her inspection with her iPhone in her hand.
Jared was not present during the meeting, and it seemed as though the couple’s three children were still at school for the day.
Ivanka’s eagerness to give herself more privacy on the balcony makes sense given how much time she has been spending out there of late.

Earlier last week, she was photographed soaking up some afternoon sun on her balcony while enjoying a warm beverage.
Wearing a green satin wrap dress from Mango, she looked happy and relaxed as she gazed out at the view, before kicking back on the family’s outdoor couch, where she proceeded to write in a notebook.
She went barefoot and accessorized her $40 dress design with two necklaces.
After standing next to the glass railing at the edge of the outdoor space, Ivanka retreated to the couch, where she put her bare feet up on the cushions and sat back with what appeared to be a black notebook and pen, perhaps to write down a few ideas.
Ivanka seemed lost in thought as she jotted down some lines in the book while keeping her drink perched in her lap.
Earlier in the month, the former fashion designer enjoyed a snuggle with her daughter’s dog, Winter, while out on the balcony.
The former businesswoman wore a long, navy and gold caftan and paired the flowing design with a pair of white jeans that accentuated her long legs, looking every inch the Florida fashionista.

Since moving to Miami just weeks ago, Ivanka has been enjoying a more relaxed post-White House schedule and appears to be taking full advantage of the opportunity to spend plenty of quality time with her children.
The oldest daughter of former President Donald Trump has been seen on a number of occasions taking her children to and from their new school, which is just a 15-minute drive from the family’s oceanfront apartment.
And when the kids aren’t in class, Ivanka and Jared have made sure to fill their time with plenty of fun activities, including trips to the beach, visits to local ice cream shops, and even an outing at a nearby alligator park.
It looks as though Ivanka and her family have quickly settled into Miami life in the few weeks since they moved into their new apartment, which they are reported to have leased for a year while they build a more permanent home on a plot of land that they purchased at the end of 2020.
Ivanka and Jared’s temporary apartment is located just over an hour away from Trump’s Palm Beach resort Mar-a-Lago, which is where he and his wife Melania are now living with their son Barron.
Ivanka’s younger sister Tiffany is understood to be looking for a home in Miami, and it was reported in January that her older brother Don Jr. and his girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle also hope to relocate to the Sunshine State.
