Monday - Thursday I have a business casual dress code at work which basically restricts us from wearing jeans. Friday is the casual dress day when everyone can wear jeans and because I struggle with finding the perfect pair that looks the way I want them to look, I rarely exercise that option.
Just because I have an aversion to jeans on me, doesn't mean I don't love denim. I love it. Since I struggle finding the right pair of jeans that fit me right, I have to find other forms of denim to wear.

Insert this denim dress I scored at Goodwill for $5. Yes, it does sort of resemble something Dolly Parton would have worn in the 80s (or present day), but it has become a great staple in my closet. I would never dare wear the dress on its own because it is a little much, but throwing on a vest, sweater or doubling it up with another button down over it changes its dynamic. However, I'll be honest, if I didn't find $5 in the dress pocket while I was trying it on, I may have not bought it. A denim dress can be seen as a huge fashion no-no or in my case it could be an alternative option to celebrating the joy of denim since I can't with jeans. However, the best part though about this dress, is that I can sort of bend the no jeans rule mid-week because technically this is a dress and not pants. :)
