She added a pair of white heels to complete her look. Taking to social media, the first lady wrote:
“#MemorialDay is a reminder of the tremendous sacrifices & bravery of our fallen service members.”
VISITING FORT MCHENRY
She also noted how she and Donald also visited the Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine to “honor those who fought for our freedoms.” The first lady included a couple of photos from the outing.
LAYING A WREATH
Melania was there when her husband participated in a wreath-laying ceremony at the cemetery. The wreath-laying ceremony was done in honor of members of the US military who have lost their lives.
On Sunday, she took part in honoring graduates by welcoming them to the White House. For this occasion she wore a champagne-colored dress with bright yellow heels.

Images from the event were posted to her official Instagram account. In one of the photos, Melania was pictured while standing in a large room in the historic building.
MAKING A SPEECH
The students who attended were spaced two meters apart to stick to the novel coronavirus disease guidelines. The first lady also gave a speech at the event with Donald by her side.
Last Thursday, she paid tribute to the graduates in a pre-recorded video. She spoke directly to the students commending them for their strength during this trying time.
