Best of British: Match made in Seven

Seven Sisters Sussex

Best of British! A very original and topical theme. But how do we translate that into our blogs? Watch and see!

Welcome to the monthly edition of  Match made in Seven! We are a international group of fashion bloggers who meet once a month. One of us chooses a theme in turn, and that can be anything. A book, music, a color, a movie. And then we style an outfit based on that theme. The theme of this month is chosen by Anna and is: Best of British! Also take a look at the other bloggers how they have interpreted the theme this month.

My Best of British interpetation

With the current Brexit awareness, this is of course a very topical subject. The first thing I immediately thought of when Anna came up with this topic, to be very honest, was fish & chips, pubs, beach, sea. Very British for me of course but I am a fashion girl of course. And now I have to say that when I’m in England I don’t wear the coolest outfits, you know it has to be comfortable and warm. But today I show you a piece of “my” England in the outfits I was wearing! I really hope that the Brexit stuff will get a happy ending. At the end of May we are planning to go again and I am curious what kind of misery it will be in Calais. But it’s all worth it. As soon as we drive back to Dover I will be “home”!Hever castle England

Of course there had to be a arcade

Brighton Best of British

My favorite town: Brighton!

And of course there are so many Best of British places and food and pubs for me. I love New Forrest and have a pick nick between the wild horses. I love wildlife parks with otters and foxes. I love a good pub on a Saturday afternoon when all the locals celebrate their weekend. I love the o so friendly British people who always have time for a chat. And I can go on for hours to name all that is so beautiful about England. I lost my heart to this wonderful country decades ago!

And now take a look at how my lovely blogger friends interpreted Best of British!

    Nancy, what a great way to interpret Best of British! Yes, fish and chips and pubs!! I kept thinking of Twiggy and Kate Middleton and knew I couldn’t pull them off! Haha! You look very stylish on your trips to England, too.

    Now, I wonder what next month will bring…

    Oh Brighton, I love to go there… I was surprised my husband told me he would like to go too! Yeah, so perhaps a short trip is on his way!

    What a great idea for a challenge. It warms the cockles of my heart to see how much you like England Nancy. Have we seen that Floral print pencil skirt before? It’s beautiful.

      Thanks Gail! I not only like England, I want to be British! haha. It’s a old skirt that I had to throw away as it was all worn out. I have worn it on the part of the blog that I lost.

    How lucky you were to have the weather be kind to you. The UK is a beautiful country with such a varied landscape. We are not long home from our latest Jilly’s Jaunts. Exhausted and in need of another break after so much travelling in the states but had a fabulous time. Love – Jill stylishatsixty.wordpress.com

      That is good to hear. Visiting a lot of different places can be exausting.

    You had me at fish and chips! We are visiting London at the end of September and I cannot wait! This was a great prompt!

      Fish and chips are definitely the epitome of britishness. I also lo e that so many of your pictures are of places in Kent, my home county, especially Hever which was just up the road from me when I was a kid.

    This is a lovely link up idea. I absolutely love that first photograph. It really looks like you’re holding that lighting house. Our lighting houses are different, they’re typically made from stone and they look a lot like regular Mediterranean stone houses, just with a tower. I’d love to visit Britian some day. I’ve been planning it for ages, but something always comes up. Great list of British favs. I studied English so obviously English history and culture is something that interests me. Nothing wrong with enjoying a bit of fish& chips. I hope you’ll enjoy your next visit to Britain.

    It was fun seeing all of the places you have traveled to, Nancy! It’s funny how I didn’t even think of foods, tea or places to visit in the UK with this theme! I didn’t think of clothing brands either, ha! My mind went straight to books and Princess Diana! You did a great job!

    I have only been to the UK once, in 2010 (oh, and I went to Scotland in 1996), and hope I’ll be back again at some point, now that I know so many UK bloggers! However, it’s so far, being on the west coast of Canada!
