They say the cottagecore craze was born out of the pandemic desire to romanticize our lives.

With free-flowing silhouettes, puffed sleeves and lively color palettes made for frolicking in your nearest garden—we chose the beautiful LSU AgCenter Botanic Gardens—these looks, modeled by Natalie Pham, are our idea of springtime bliss. Hover over the images below for all the outfit details.
