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.

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.
