JINGER Duggar defied her famous family during their trip to New York City.
Husband Jeremy Vuolo, 35, shared a snap of his wife Jinger, 29, on Instagram.
The Counting alum rocked a pair of ripped jeans during her walk in the Big Apple.
The former TLC star appeared to break away from the strict dress code enforced by her conservative parents Jim Bob, 57, and Michelle Duggar. 56
Per the Patriarch’s dress code, women in the Duggar family are not allowed to wear jeans or short skirts on any occasion.
While distancing herself from her famous parents, Jinger appeared to be enjoying the sights of New York.
The TV star recently visited a Barnes & Noble bookstore to promote her collector’s book, Becoming Free Indeed.
While conducting several interviews and book signings with fans, Jinger filmed views of the famous skyline and snapped photos in Times Square.
Traveling to the city that never sleeps has been a dream of Jinger’s for many years, especially since her parents banned her from visiting the city.
“LIVE CLOSER TO THE CITY”
In 2012, she gushed about The Five Boroughs on an episode of 19 Kids and Counting, refusing to “live three hours outside of civilization.”

Then, in March 2013, matriarch Michelle made it clear that she would not approve of her daughter’s move to Empire City.
The 19-year-old mother told Radar Online: “Jinger didn’t mean she wanted to move to New York City.
“She said she would like to live closer to a city.
Michelle continued, “We’re talking in close proximity to a city here, but not New York City.
“Jinger said she wanted to live 15 minutes from a Walmart.”
She continued, “We live on 50 acres so far out of town, but Jinger wants to live closer to town so she doesn’t have to drive so far to go shopping.”
Before Jinger’s older brother was sentenced to 151 months in prison for child pornography, Josh Duggar, 34, moved to Washington DC with his wife and children.
Michelle suggested her daughter move to the nation’s capital.
She assumed, “Jinger would love to spend time with her brother and all their children in Washington.
“New York City is far better than what we would ever consider a city to move to!”
Jinger and Jeremy are parents to two children: daughters Felicity, four, and Evangeline Jo, one.
The couple eventually moved to Los Angeles from their family home in Arkansas.
Though sister Jessa Duggar, 29, and her rarely seen sister Jana Marie, 32, have not commented on Jinger’s memoir, sister Jill, 31, and cousin Amy, 36, have expressed their support.
The memoir revealed what the TV personality experienced in a restrictive belief as she was commanded to always obey her parents and other authority figures and to avoid virtually all aspects of pop culture.
