I’m having not the same, but a similar experience now that I live out in the middle of nowhere surrounded by corn. When I lived in Phoenix there were more options to choose from than I’d ever need, or want. Out here it’s basically coveralls, flannel, thermal and mud galoshes. I’ve learned to love them equally as much. I still have my freedom of expression through hair and accessories.
