We are just days away from the birth of another Duggar baby, but while we wait for the arrival of Jim Bob and Michelle’s 12th grandchild, Counting On star Jinger Duggar continues to break her parents’ rules. On a recent trip to Dallas, Texas, to visit friends, Jinger rocked some skinny pants with a button-up and sandals – and the mom-to-be looked adorable.
In one of the pics she took with friends, Jinger posed with a friend who is also expecting, and she cradled her baby bump while smiling for the camera.
As In Touch Weekly reports, Jinger has been ignoring her family’s strict dress code for a while now, and fans are loving how the 24-year-old is making her own choices and being herself.
“You look so beautiful, @jingervuolo — even in your pants. I’m glad to see that you’re being the person I always knew you would grow up to be, your own person,” wrote a fan on Instagram.
Jinger is a fashion trendsetter in her family. She was the first Duggar daughter to wear pants, but we may have missed how earlier she started the rebellious behavior. We all noticed how her fashion choices changed once she married Jeremy Vuolo, but in a photo recently posted on Reddit, it looks like she wore pants before she tied the knot.
In the pic – from 2015 – Jinger poses with friends and family members before they head out to enjoy some time in the snow, and she is wearing pants. This was the year before she started to court – then marry – Vuolo. Also in the pic, Jinger’s sister Joy-Anna is wearing pants, too.
Now, to be fair, both sisters are wearing snow pants, and they are clearly about to partake in some kind of outdoor adventure. But, for a long time, there didn’t seem to be any flexibility when it came to the “no pants” rule in the Duggar family dress code. After all, we’ve seen women wear skirts when they do everything from working out at the gym to fighting fires.
It turns out it wasn’t Vuolo who granted Jinger her fashion freedom, so she could start wearing pants, mini-skirts, shorts, and heels. Instead, Jinger Duggar started to assert her independence all on her own.
New episodes of Counting On will return to TLC on Monday, July 30th.
