put on airs and give oneself airs
Fig. to act better than one really is; to pretend to be good or to be superior. Pay no attention to her. She is just putting on airs. Stop giving yourself airs and act like the rest of us.



    YATTENDON, England (AP) - They've met the parents. They've even gone shooting with the parents. They've had their trial breakups and trial makeups.

   Now, people in this very English village say, it's time for Prince William and local girl Kate Middleton to make it official.

   After all, the cautious prince has been dating Middleton on and off - mostly on - for more than eight years, ever since they met at the University of St. Andrews.

   "We'd be delighted," said Pru Shepheard, doing her daily shopping at the village store where Middleton is a frequent customer, occasionally accompanied by William. "It would be madness for them not to get married.

   "Kate's one of us - she doesn't put on airs and graces, and she's such a lovely girl. Everyone who meets her, likes her."



  Indeed, everyone likes people that are simple in such a ways, not putting on airs!
