Hello lovely readers! I’m Maria from Lulu Letty. I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am to be participating in the Best of British month on Cait’s blog!
It’s probably not much of a secret, but I’m a huge Anglophile. Tracing it back to the beginning, I believe my British obsession began when I was a little girl with my parents’ love of 80s New Wave (in particular New Order) and continued on to high school with the first time I read Pride and Prejudice. I wanted to be Elizabeth and meet my Darcy. My husband and I even attended a six week UK study abroad program in 2002.
Some of my happiest blogging moments have occurred when people actually think I’m British. I’m sure it has something to do with my rural Michigan setting that eerily resembles the English countryside or maybe more so my heavily influenced British style. The floral prints, wellington boots, leather school satchels, waxed canvas coats, all things tweed and of course brogues…I love it all!
