Over the past couple of years, I've been trying to invest in more Spring and Summer dresses that'll last me for years to come. I've been on a quest to find the best cottagecore brands, so I've put together a list of my favourites for you to check out. 

Son De Flor

If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know that I've featured my Son De Flor dresses* in my photos more times than I can count. I have a variety of colours for all kinds of occasions. The lightweight linen is perfect for all seasons and every new release I get more excited to add to my ever growing collection. 

Hearts and Found

I have lusted after a Hearts and Found dress since last year and I finally caved once I set my eyes on the Isadora Dress design as I just knew I had to have it. Although I have lots of dresses in my collection, this dress has quickly gone up to one of my most worn. I also have dresses in their Loretta and Lorraine styles, both of which are perfect for the Spring and Summer months - I can feel that they're going to get lots of wear.

Dreaming of Ivy

I stumbled across Dreaming of Ivy on Etsy accidentally, but I'm so happy I did. Abi's design are not only beautiful to wear, you can tell how much love and effort goes into every piece. Not only that, but she was so accommodating to my custom requests and I would 100% purchase from her again soon. 

Little Women Atelier 

Ever since I ventured further into the cottagecore aesthetic, I have wanted a Little Women Atelier dress. They aren't my usual style, but they looked great for when I wanted to create some creative photos for Instagram and I knew I wanted one to wear to twirl around in the flowers in Spring. I chose the Beth Dress after much deliberation and every time I've worn it I get so many compliments out and about.

I've wanted to do a blog post like this for some time and after seeing Desi do a full YouTube video on her favourites, it finally inspired to work on my own list. I actually curated a list on Instagram which you can save now for easy viewing. I wanted to include TV shows and films that give me the 'cottage core' vibe as well as being 'princess core' and anything aesthetic thrown in there too. 

I think it's much harder to find TV shows to fit the 'cottagecore' aesthetic than it is to find films, but I've tried to list a few that offer all the cosy vibes. I think the Great British Bake Off is one of my favourites as it includes lots of baking inspiration and for an episode or two, it helps to me to unwind and slow down. 

      • Bridgerton (Netflix)
      • Anne With An E  (Netflix) 
      • The Great British Bake Off (All 4 on Demand)

It feels like there's too many films to mention when it comes to sharing my favourite cottagecore watches, but I've managed to shorten the list just a little. I love the set designs in these films alongside the portrayal of seasons and outfits. If you're looking for some inspiration on what to watch then look now further: 

      • Little Women (Netflix)                            
      • Emma (Netflix)
      • Peter Rabbit (Now*)                                      
      • The Hobbit (Netflix)
      • Paddington (Now/Netflix)
      • Matilda (Now*)
      • Pride and Prejudice (Netflix)
      • The Secret Garden (Now*) 
      • Narnia (Disney +)
      • Maleficent (Disney +) 
      • Miss Potter (Netflix)
      • The Holiday (Amazon)
      • Fantastic Mr Fox (Now*)

"Coastal Grandmother" Summer Style Inspiration

- All links in this blog post are affiliate links. For more info head to my disclaimer. -

The "coastal grandmother" trend is definitely the aesthetic of the Summer. It offers up floaty fabrics, white linen and timeless nautical outfits perfect for sipping wine in by the beach. For me, it's already a classic Summer style and on my recent coastal holiday, I was glad to embrace it further. Today, I wanted to share some of my favourite finds, so you can take inspiration for your own looks this Summer. 

& Other Stories is currently one of the best places to find coastal grandmother clothing items, this Smocked Mini Dress being one of my favourite finds. The puff sleeves and blue and white pattern looks perfect for the beach or walking around a city on holiday. This Striped Pull Over is unlike anything else I own, but I think it would be great for chilly evenings when you want something to throw on. 

Another brand I love, but it's definitely on the more affordable side is H&M. I bought this Linen Blend Striped Dress which is actually what started my love off for this type of aesthetic as it was super comfortable and easy to wear on a hot Summer's day. H&M also offer Linen Shirts and Linen Blend Shirts which are perfect for throwing over a dress at the end of the day or tucking into a pair of culottes.
