Best of British: A Thought is the Blossom

Purse: c/o Little Ocean Annie
Bike Necklace: Modcloth

I'm Starr from A Thought is the Blossom and I live in a small Southern state in the US called Arkansas. We don't do fancy tea time here and we certainly don't use rose dripped china in the afternoons, rather we drink sweet iced tea out of plain ole' plastic cups to the tune of a good book or maybe even a BBQ (if we're lucky).

I'm probably the least knowledgeable person to be drafting a post about British things, seeing as I've never tackled the terrain or experienced the culture myself, but I'm thrilled that Cait has asked me to take part in all things British and I'll do my best to keep up with all of the other lovely posts we've seen this month.

Truth be told, I'm dazzled by the Brits! They're such an endearing flock of folk. First there's the accent that just makes everything sound that much better, then the school uniforms (which I was never made to wear, so I'm mesmerized by them) and the quirky words in their text that don't seem to translate to anything in American English, and the history; so much good history. These are things that may seem plain to the locals, but to a foreigner like me, they're enthralling.

I'd say the most relatable British thing that I try to emulate nearly everyday in my life is the fashion! Who knows where there history really lies, but I like to think things like satchels and oxfords and trench coats are very preppy British things. They remind me of English schoolboys which isn't a bad thing at all.
