That's bold! Ivanka Trump models a bright red dress as she smiles and gives a thumbs up outside of the White House - one day after her father's second impeachment

 Ivanka Trump was seen smiling and giving a thumbs up while leaving the White House on Thursday, the day after her father was impeached for a historic second time.  

The White House senior adviser's days in the White House are coming to an end, but she appeared to be in good spirits while leaving the West Wing in a figure-hugging red dress with a back slit. 

Ivanka, 39, paired the bright cherry-colored frock with shiny black patent leather stilettos and her square, cushion-cut diamond engagement ring, a bold look for the unseasonably warm winter day.

The former businesswoman has mostly steered clear of ostentatious jewelry since she started working as a White House senior adviser, and she rarely wears the 5.22-carat jewel that is rumored to be worth over $500,000. 

But she almost always has on a red string bracelet on her left wrist, which was also visible on Thursday. Though she hasn't spoken about its purpose, it does bear a resemblance to the type of red string that Kabbalah practitioners wear to ward off the 'evil eye.'  

Her straight blonde hair looked as though it had recently been cut and colored and was worn down around her shoulders. She was also sporting smokey eye-makeup and a pink lip, a go-to look for her.  

Ivanka was photographed standing next to the open door of a Secret Service SUV while giving a tight, toothless smile and a thumbs up to someone at the White House. 

Her husband, fellow White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, also had a smile on his face when he left their Washington. D.C. home on Thursday morning.

Ivanka has kept out of the spotlight following last week's fatal insurrection a the U.S. Capitol, which has lead to five deaths more than 70 people arrested. 

Trump was impeached Wednesday by the House on a single charge, incitement of insurrection, in lightning-quick proceedings just a week after the siege. Ten Republicans joined all Democrats in the 232-203 vote to impeach. 

The president's historic second impeachment could go to trial as soon as Inauguration Day, with U.S. senators serving not only as jurors but as shaken personal witnesses and victims of the deadly siege of the Capitol by a mob of his supporters.

Trump is the only president to be twice impeached, and the first to be prosecuted as he leaves the White House, an ever-more-extraordinary end to the defeated president's tenure.

The trial could begin shortly after President-elect Joe Biden takes the oath of office next Wednesday, but some Democrats are pushing for a later trial to give him time to set up his administration and work on other priorities. 

Happy? Ivanka's husband, fellow White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, also had a smile on his face when he left their Washington. D.C. home on Thursday morning

No date has been set, but already National Guard troops flood the city and protect the Capitol amid warnings of more violence ahead of the inaugural. It's a far different picture, due to the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the threats of violence, from the traditional pomp and peaceful transfer of power.

Whenever it starts, the impeachment trial will force a further reckoning for the Republican Party and the senators who largely stood by Trump throughout his presidency and allowed him to spread false attacks against the 2020 election.  

No president has ever been convicted in the Senate, and it would take a two-thirds vote against Trump, an extremely high hurdle. Two new senators from Georgia, both Democrats, are to be sworn in, leaving the chamber divided 50-50. 

That will tip the majority to the Democrats once Kamala Harris takes office. The vice president is the tie breaker.

But conviction of Trump is not out of the realm of possibility, especially as corporations and wealthy political donors distance themselves from his brand of politics and the Republicans who stood by his attempt to overturn the election. 

Not only was Ivanka likely reeling from her father's second impeachment on Thursday, but she was also confronted with a new report from The Washington Post that revealed she and her husband Jared do not let Secret Service agents guarding their Washington D.C. residence use any of their 6.5 bathrooms.

Location: The property the agency rented is down the street from where Jared and Ivanka rent their home for $15,000 per month in the elite Kalorama neighborhood in D.C.

Instead, the agency was forced to rent out a $3,000 per-month basement studio nearby solely for bathroom use.   

Starting in September 2017 through the present day, the United State Secret Service has spent more than $100,000 in taxpayer dollars on the rental property from a neighbor of the Kushner's in Washington's elite Kalorama neighborhood.

Neighbors and law enforcement officials told The Post that the Secret Service spent months searching for a reliable place to use the bathroom while agents were assigned to Kushner and Trump's detail.

Before deciding to rent out a nearby apartment, agents used a porta-potty and sometimes would visit the homes of neighbors, like former President Barack Obama, or the not-so-nearby residence of Vice President Mike Pence, to use the bathroom. They sometimes would use local businesses to relieve themselves, as well. 

'It's the first time I ever heard of a Secret Service detail having to go to these extremes to find a bathroom,' one law enforcement official familiar with the situation said. 

White House Spokesperson Judd Deere said the couple did restrict agents from using their bathrooms, claiming the Secret Service decided not to allow the protective detail inside. 

A law enforcement official familiar with the situation pushed back against this account, insisting the family requested agents stay out of the house.  

Same plan? Ivanka and Jared are believed to be moving to Miami, Florida, with their three children, Joseph, Theodore, and Arabella (left to right)

Speculation: Ivanka and Jared reportedly purchased a $31 million plot of land on Miami's 'Billionaire Bunker'

Speculation has been swirling that Ivanka will run for the U.S. Senate in Florida in 2022 after it was revealed that she and her husband Jared Kushner reportedly bought a $31 million plot of land on Miami's 'Billionaire Bunker.'  

The land is nestled in Indian Creek, a highly exclusive neighborhood that touts beautiful waterfront homes and tons of privacy.

The island, found off the coast of Miami, got the nickname 'Billionaire Bunker' because of the high-profile residents that have settled onto the island, including model Adriana Lima and billionaire businessman Carl Icahn of New York City. 

Many believe that Ivanka and Jared will no longer be welcome in the same elite social circles they once ran in before her father became president — with her close friend Georgina Bloomberg admitting 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.
