25 Cute School Supplies to Live Out Your Cottagecore Dreams

We understand that preparing for going back to school in-person is both exciting and intimidating. As we shift our mindset and environments from distance learning to classroom learning, Passion Planner wants you to have the best (and cutest!) back to school supplies. 

What is Cottagecore

Cottagecore is a popular aesthetic that romanticizes simple living and countryside life. This lifestyle encourages traditional skills such as gardening and baking bread. The cottagecore aesthetic is ideal for those who love nature and appreciate a spontaneous picnic by the river. This aesthetic is an up-and-coming theme for school supplies and we’ve got the perfect list to help you start living out your cottagecore dreams.
