Jill Duggar Defied Her Family Even More With the Outfit She Chose for Israel’s Back-to-School Photos
If there’s any Duggar known for being the “rebel” in the family, it’s Jill Duggar. Since 2019, fans have noticed that Jill and her husband, Derick Dillard, seem to be on the outs with the rest of Jill’s family. And they’ve gone against Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s ways by being the first in the family to send their kids to public school.
Now, Jill’s celebrating her son’s first day. And she posted photos to Instagram for her fans. Not only that, but we noticed her outfit for the photos certainly wasn’t Duggar-approved.
Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard are sending their kids to public school
Jim Bob and Michelle made the decision to homeschool all 19 of their kids. But Jill and Derick are choosing differently for their sons. The couple made the controversial decision to send their son, Israel, to public kindergarten — and it looks like Jill and Derick plan on keeping their kids in public school for the entirety of their schooling.
Jill first made the announcement that she was sending Israel to public school back in February 2020. “Look who’s registered for kindergarten!” she captioned a post showing her 5-year-old.
Now, Jill’s sharing more information regarding how she’s getting Israel prepped for his first week. “We are gonna go school supply shopping because it’s tax-free weekend,” Jill explained in a video she posted to her family blog in August 2020. “So, we’re gonna go get Israel school supplies.” And, of course, she documented Israel’s first day with plenty of photos posted to Instagram.
Jill’s back-to-school photos featured her in ripped jeans
While Jill’s certainly going out on a limb with her multiple posts regarding Israel’s first day of school, we also can’t ignore the outfit she chose. Those who follow the Duggars know Jim Bob and Michelle had serious rules regarding dress code for their kids. The girls were only allowed to wear skirts that hit below the knee, as no pants were allowed. And they also couldn’t wear anything form-fitting or shoulder-bearing.
“Happy first day of school for these two!” Jill captioned her post. “1st day of Kindergarten for Israel and 1st day of last year of law school for Derick!”
Jill’s first photo shows Derick next to Israel in their yard. The following photo just features Israel smiling with his backpack on. And the third photo shows Jill crouching down next to Israel in ripped, form-fitting jeans.
It doesn’t look like her family supports her decision
This certainly isn’t the first time Jill’s non-Duggar-approved outfits have been featured on her ‘gram. She recently wore shorts to Joy-Anna Duggar’s baby shower even though Michelle and Jim Bob were also in attendance. So it seems the mom of two is finished worrying about what her family thinks of her lifestyle changes and is ready to embrace her new future.
While plenty of the Duggars comment on each other’s Instagrams, Jill’s parents and siblings have also been quite quiet when it comes to the posts about Israel’s first day of school. Amy Duggar, the “rebel” cousin who’s supported Jill, commented, “Cuties!” on Israel’s photos. But it doesn’t look like Jana, Jessa, Jinger, Joy-Anna, or Anna Duggar have made any comments.
We’ll have to wait and see if any of Jill’s siblings comment on Israel’s first day back. And we’ll be even more interested to see if any other Duggars choose to put their kids in the public school system.
