Joy-Anna, 25, documented the outing on her vlog posted on Friday, showing the reality star spending time with some of her siblings.
At the beginning of the video, she explained that her sister Jinger, 29, and brother-in-law Jeremy Vuolo, 35, were visiting from California.
The ladies made the most of the short visit by going to lunch, shopping, and hanging out at a coffee shop.
They also met up with other members of the Duggar clan, including matriarch Michelle, 56, and their sister, Jana, 32.
At one point, Joy-Anna filmed the girls shopping at a thrift store and stopped to take a snap of herself in the mirror.
The TV personality sported a pair of tight blue jeans, a black top, and an unzipped tan jacket as she cradled her baby bump.
She completed the look with brown sandals, eyeglasses, and her brunette hair tied back with a clip.
However, the ensemble didn’t align with her father, Jim Bob‘s stern guidelines for women to dress modestly, wearing only long skirts and dresses.
Nevertheless, this was not the first time Joy-Anna broke the rules regarding her attire.
Last month, the mom of two shared a mirror selfie again showing off her growing baby bump.
The TV star donned a long-sleeve green shirt and distressed blue jeans cuffed at the ankle.
Joy-Anna recently explained her reason for changing her wardrobe, saying that it wasn’t a decision she made lightly.
“Austin and I prayed about this for a long time, and I think we had the first conversation within our first year of marriage,” referring to her husband.
She continued that their journey involved “studying and reading the Bible and digging in deep” for three to four years.
“It wasn’t something that I was super persistent about studying because, honestly, I’d always worn skirts my whole life, and so for me, I wasn’t in a rush,” she added.
The TLC star then confirmed: “So really, the last year we really prayed about it and felt like there wasn’t anything in scripture – there isn’t anything in scripture that’s black and white on dress.
“It talks a lot about modesty, but I feel like you can be modest and wear pants, and so that’s kind of where we came to.”
Joy-Anna concluded: “I think basically we just looked through scripture for a long time and feel like this is okay for our family and where we are.”
BABY No. 3
The TV personality announced in October that she and Austin, 29, were expecting their third child later this year.
Last month, Joy-Anna revealed on her vlog that she was “30 weeks along” before disclosing, “I’m probably going to get induced a little bit early.”
Joy-Anna and Austin are also parents to a five-year-old son Gideon, and a two-year-old daughter Evelyn.
