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!

  1. Haha, how unexpected to find you as part of this feature! But you do have quite a British look! ; )

    I always get mistaken for British, due to my father being from there, and my accent not being particularly North American. No British person ever thinks so though, unfortunately!

  3. I used to want to be British as well, to the point where I would sometimes try to fake a terrible british accent when I would meet new people in Australia.

    Now that I am living in Canada though I always get asked if I am from England because a lot of people can not tell the difference in the accents- so this works in my favour (-:
