I had so much fun with Brit Week, that it continued through the weekend (Pimm’s Cup for everyone!). As the grand finale, here’s a bangers and mash-up of some of my favorites. But honestly, I could do this again ten times over!
Kate Middleton, or rather the Duchess of Cambridge. Obvious choice, but damn this girl is bloody brilliant:
Plaid. This one looks surprising similar to our family tartan.
From Elle Décor:
British racing green. There’s not a better car color out there!
Well, that’s me being biased, but it’s my blog after all.
Eddie Izzard – enough said.
If you love Downton Abbey, I recommend you read the book that was inspiration for the series. It’s giving me my fix until the new season begins.
Laura Ashley. This takes me back to 1987. The image of my then punk rock sister dressed in a Laura Ashley dress still makes me laugh.
The Conran collection. These table designs feel fun and fresh. British, yet somehow very Santa Barbara.
English Garden Books.
This one from the Prince of Wales himself – he’s so green!
Monty Python. Nothing wrong with a little French taunting.
Fox hunts. Now we’re getting sporty.
Links courses remind me of childhood trips across the pond. I can still hear the bagpipes!
Here’s gorgeous Carnoustie:
Wimbledon. June 25th will be here before we know it! Folks dressed in crisp white drinking Pimm’s Cup— these are MY people. I was rooting for you, MURRAY!
Harry Potter. There is an obsession for him in our household, so he had to make the list.
Stilton—stinky and delicious. Can’t say that about many things.
What did I miss? Everything, I’m sure!
Oh, shoot – I can’t forget fish and chips and mushy peas!
Eat them in town.
Or make them at home.
And of course, Nigella. All that talent, hair and buxomness, it’s just unfair.
