JILL Duggar has shocked her fans by breaking her family’s strict dress code and wearing a daring outfit on a day out with Derick Dillard.
Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar impose strict etiquette standards on their family, which include covering shoulders and knees, wearing dresses and skirts, and avoiding plunging necklines.
Jill, 32, shared a carousel full of candy photos from a recent outing with her husband Derick, 34.
The couple attended the Stilwell Strawberry Festival in Oklahoma and captured the fun in photos.
Among the many snaps was one of the Counting On graduates posing alongside the Strawberry Queen.
The beauty pageant winner wore a sequined red dress that would never fly in the Duggar household, but she wasn’t the only one who bucked the strict standards of modesty.
Jill was seen smiling as she wore a low-cut top and protected her modesty with a white singlet.
In the photo she was wearing denim shorts – something she should never have worn before.
The mother-of-three shared some details of the outing in the caption, revealing, “I’ve just had another look at the pictures and was about to post these earlier…”
“We had the best time at #stilwellstrawberryfestival this year.”
She continued: “I got to help judge the competition and Derick ran the 5k, we had our share of delicious Indian tacos and the strawberry cheesecake funnel was every bit as good as it sounds!!
“And of course we came home with lots of berries!”
Fans flooded the comments with positivity and praise for Jill.
One supporter wrote: “So happy for you enjoying life now. All the best to you and your own family.”
Another commented: “You look so happy! The strawberries look amazing too and the funnel cake looks delicious. I hope you had a wonderful time.”
A third fan commented: “How funny!!! Looks great by the way!”
Jill has distanced herself from the Duggar family and the many strict rules they live by.
The star has shown off her new lifestyle on social media and fans are giving her every support.
On Wednesday, the TLC graduate released a new photo showing off her legs.
She posted a picture to Instagram where she is dressed for the warmer pre-summer weather.
In the snap, she was outside on a patch of grass overgrown with weeds and other greenery.
Jill sported a fresh orange pedicure and matching manicure, which she got during a spa date with Derick last week.
In contrast to the modest clothes Jill wore while living with her parents, the reality TV alum flashed her legs in a pretty orange dress with a white floral print.
The skirt of her dress only reached mid-thigh, revealing a lot of bare skin.
Jill captioned the photo: “Summer days warm the heart! What are your summer plans?”
Explaining the plans for herself and her three children, she wrote, “We’ve just gained access to the swimming pool here and look forward to being frequent visitors!”
“We’re working on our summer reading schedule and have been busy gardening … (Maybe I’ve bitten off a little more than I can chew), but we’re glad we’re just starting to enjoy some of the fruit of ours.” Work!!”
She also reminded her followers that her upcoming book is available for pre-order after bringing the release date forward to September 12.
TIME TO HEAL
Since appearing in the Amazon Prime documentary Shiny Happy People, Jill has focused on herself and her family.
In it, she spoke about her painful upbringing at the Institute for Fundamental Life Principles (IBLP) and the strict rules her parents imposed.
After the film came out, Jill was showered with praise from fans.
She shared a photo of herself looking down at her feet, which weren’t visible in the photo, while holding up the jumpsuit she was wearing.
She appeared to be referring to her family situation in the caption, which read: “Life is a journey. Sometimes you build courage in the toughest of storms.”
Fans flocked to the comments to share their thoughts on Shiny Happy People and Jill’s revelations within.
One supporter wrote: “You did a great job on the documentary! I don’t even see a ‘dishonour’ of your parents; just facts about what happened and all the good childhood memories are captivating.”
“Keep doing what you are doing. Oh, and sing Hey Girl by Anne Wilson. I call this one of my ‘freedom songs’.” Never forget who you are and who made you who you are.
Jill responded to the comment: “Thank you. I love my parents.”
Days earlier, she appeared to take a dig at her father in a social media post.
