JINGER Duggar has broken her family’s strict dress code rules yet again during her trip to New York City.
Jinger, 29, took to Instagram on Sunday and shared a snap of herself enjoying afternoon tea at a restaurant in Columbus Circle, Manhattan, as she continued to promote her book.
The mom-of-two looked super stylish in a pair of tan-colored leather pants which she paired with a long-sleeved black sweater.
Jinger wore her blond hair down straight and accessorized with a pair of chunky hoop earrings as she enjoyed a hot beverage and some small cakes at a table with a view.
The reality TV star simply captioned the post: “Happy Sunday,” and was inundated with compliments.
“So beautiful and genuine. Just finishing your book and I think it’s one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever read,” one person said.
Another wrote: “So happy for you Jinger. Looks like you’re having so much fun.”
A third person commented: “I just finished your book. It was so inspiring. Thank you.”
And a fourth fan said: “I applaud you girl!! Your life, your call!” while a fifth simply added: “Beautiful lady.”
“You finally look very peaceful and relaxed,” someone else observed.

This isn’t the first time that Jinger has been rocking leather, as just last week, fans got a glimpse of her wearing a pair of sexy black pants in a new VLOG uploaded onto YouTube.
Around halfway through the 20-minute video, Jinger revealed that she had called in a stylist to provide her with various looks for the shoot – which took place in Los Angeles.
One particular sexy outfit that Jinger opted for was a pair of black leather high-waisted pants, which she teamed with a high-neck black jumper and a belt.
The mom of two appeared to be in her element as she stood in front of a blank canvas and posed for the photographer.
Her attire is certainly a far cry from the clothing she was allowed to wear growing up in her parent’s strict Christian household.
The Duggars tried to implement a conservative dress code for their kids, and also discouraged birth control use, and urged the use of parental chaperones when they went on dates prior to being married.
The Duggar children were also homeschooled and grew up with strict and limited access to entertainment and television.
Jinger, who is the sixth child of Jim Bob and Michelle, left the church in 2017, and has since slammed its teachings as “cult-like.”
Jinger’s new book, which was released this week, will shed new light on the sisters’ upbringing.
Speaking to People, Jinger said: “The teaching I grew up under was harmful, it was damaging, and there are lasting effects.”
Jinger and her 18 siblings were raised under the teachings of the Institute in Basic Life Principles, a Christian organization established by disgraced minister Bill Gothard.
Bill, 88, led the church until 2014, when more than 30 women accused him of sexual harassment and molestation over a period of decades.
Both Jill and Jinger have distanced themselves from their parents Jim Bob and Michelle in recent years.
The sisters have defied their father’s dress code, which forbids women from wearing short skirts or jeans, on many occasions.
Jinger and her husband, Jeremy Vuolo, have also distanced themselves from the Duggars in recent years.
Jinger moved away from the family compound in Arkansas to Los Angeles, where she and Jeremy live with their two children – Felicity, four, and Evie, two.
Meanwhile, her parents have largely supported their controversial son Josh throughout his prison sentencing for child pornography – which was why Counting On was canceled.
