Long skirts? Never heard of ’em! Jill Duggar took to Instagram on Wednesday, June 19, to show off a stylish pair of pants, wedge heels and a white blouse. The former Counting On star, whose family is known to dress modestly, has been pushing the boundaries quite a bit lately.
“I’ve had several inquiries about this first outfit after I posted a pic in a recent post, so I wanted to share a bit more … ” the 28-year-old captioned a series of photos, which were originally shared on her Story. “My sister-in-law’s good friend [Elisheba Beery] just started a boutique [Juiper Anne] in memory of her sister who passed away. Ten percent of all the profits go to a shelter for abused women!”
Unfortunately, several commenters found ways to criticize the TLC alum. “I never seen a family smile so much when a loved one has died,” one person fumed, referring to the tragic passing of Grandma Mary. “All of you have posted one photo after another smiling and this is really disgraceful.” Another added, “Iron your pants you are modeling them for $.” A third, however, was loving it. “Glad to see you embracing pants now. Nothing wrong with wearing pants and also you are rocking them!!” We couldn’t agree more.
A pants-sighting, however, is indeed rare in the famous household. Back in 2013, Jill’s mom, Michelle Duggar, said in an interview that there’s a reason they dress conservatively. “Our interpretation [of modesty is] that from the neck down to the knee should be covered. By keeping those private areas covered, there’s not any ‘defrauding’ going on,” she explained at the time. “My kids are taught the definition of defrauding as stirring up desires that cannot be righteously fulfilled. We don’t believe in defrauding others by the way we dress.”
In other words, shield your eyes, Jim Bob! The brunette beauty recently showed off her shoulders in the pool (gasp), pierced her nose and got a henna tattoo. Oh yeah, and Jill also confessed to wearing lingerie in the bedroom to keep things spicy with her husband, Derick Dillard.
