COTTAGECORE PICNIC ESSENTIALS

FOR A BEAUTIFUL DAY

Cottagecore is about living a simpler life. It's interesting that each generation has required more stimulation and excitement to feel satisfied than the last. When I was a younger millenaial, the thought of sitting in the park quietly did not seem exciting enough to pursue. The victorian house I grew up with design aesthetics like grandma chic did not appeal to me in the slightest. 

Now, as an adult and mother living in these crazy times, nothing sounds more soothing to my soul than spending the afternoon enjoying a simple picnic at the park.

The paradox is that even though I long for simplicity, and I love the cottagecore aesthetic, I do not have rustic hand-me-downs. We also don't have a place to shop for the style of vintage I long for, as a diplomat, currently living in Africa. So, I curated this darling cottagecore picnic essentials buying guide.

We can all use a little tranquility, and let's be real... cottagecore is about pastoral, simple days. Yet, we live in a modern, convenient world. In that spirit, enjoy this curated list to prepare you for the gorgeous picnic.
