Live Out Your Cottagecore Dreams With These Pretty Finds

Picture it. Dappled sunbeams break through and soak the meadows in golden light. Nearby, you might hear the babbling of a happy brook, or see a little fawn grazing on some grass before laying down for a sleepy snooze. Right around the corner is your picturesque homestead, complete with the smell of freshly baked bread wafting from the windows. Is it something out of a Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale? No, my friends, this is the dream of cottagecore life. If you aren’t familiar with this aesthetic movement, allow me to introduce you to your new dream. It’s a place where self-sufficiency and dainty details collide. Those who are familiar and involved in the cottagecore lifestyle swap recipes for fresh-baked scones and show off their foraged mushroom hauls. It’s steeped in a yearning for simpler, screen-free times. It’s also a feminist movement. It’s domestic bliss without being regressive to gender roles. It’s a desire to be closer to nature. But you don’t have to live on rolling green acres of land to imbibe in the lifestyle. It’s a mindset as much as it is an aesthetic. We rounded up a few things to help you kick off your cottagecore life.
