Huma Abedin was spotted heading home after a stressful 24 hours following ex-husband Weiner’s sentencing for sexting a 15-year-old girl, while her boss Hillary Clinton held a New Jersey book signing.
The longtime Clinton aide, 41, returned to her New York City home on Tuesday evening, cutting a bold figure in embroidered jeans and a white blouse.
Abedin was pictured this morning for the first time since her husband Anthony Weiner was handed a 21-month prison sentence for sexting an underage girl, dropping her five-year-old off at school.

Weiner, 53, was spotted during the school run but stayed inside a car while his wife, who filed for divorce in May on the same day he pleaded guilty to sexting with a minor, walked nearby on the sidewalk.
Meanwhile, Abedin’s boss was in New Jersey holding a book signing for her latest work, What Happened.
The former presidential candidate was greeted with crowds of supporters waiting outside Watchung Booksellers on Tuesday at Montclair, New Jersey.
Inside, Clinton signed copies of her new book – which details her experiences running against Donald Trump in the 2016 election – and chatted with fans.’

Abedin, who was not present at Weiner’s sentencing yesterday, looked somber during this morning’s outing and bowed her head, while shielding her eyes behind sunglasses.
The political staffer paired the multicolored jeans with hoop earrings and a touch of red lipstick, letting her hair flow freely on her shoulders.
Her eye-catching jeans, which were once worn by Amal Clooney, come from Alice and Olivia’s 2016 pre-fall collection are as such, are no longer available, but it is estimated that an equivalent model this season would have cost between $800 to $900.
While Abedin didn’t appear in court for her husband’s sentencing yesterday, she did write a letter as part of the case, asking for mercy as she begged for the judge’s sentencing not to have a ‘negative impact’ on their son.
Timing: The staffer’s outing came hours after her estranged husband found out he will have to surrender to a prison facility in November

In the missive, she told authorities she was ‘devastated’ by the actions of her husband of seven years, and pointed out she was writing this letter for the benefit of their son, whom she called ‘the light of our life’.
‘As would any parent, if there has to be any negative impact on [redacted], I would like to be as small as possible,’ Abedin wrote.
Weiner has agreed to register as a sex offender, and as such the disgraced congressman will be prevented from going within a certain distance of schools.
Earlier this month, when he and Abedin took their son Jordan to his first day of school, the father turned back halfway through the walk, leaving Jordan and his mother to complete the rest of the trip together.
Sentence: Weiner, who is seen leaving New York federal court on Monday, agreed to register as a sex offender, and as such will be prevented from going within a certain distance of schools
Details: Weiner still wore his wedding ring even though he and Abedin are currently in divorce proceedings and appeared in court earlier this month as part of the case
Weiner must surrender himself on November 6 to a prison facility, which has yet to be determined.
His history of sexting with the underage girl, whom he asked to strip naked and to touch herself on Skype, was first revealed by DailyMail.com a year ago and resulted in a federal investigation.
During his sentencing hearing, the former politician said he had betrayed his son’s ‘amazing mother’, Abedin, and referred to the boy as his ‘salvation’.
‘I focus on how I live my new, smaller, healthier life one day at a time,’ he said. ‘I was a very sick man for a very long time. I have a disease but no excuse.’
