“Dressing well is a form of good manners”

– Tom Ford

I began Cocoa Butter Diaries in May 2015 to highlight my ability to mix high and low fashion pieces.  At first, I was using Instagram and my personal Facebook page as a “personal style diary” to post my daily outfits and share my fashion finds with my friends.  I do love classic pieces and investment items but I don’t always wear or buy designer items – it’s just not my life.  I hope that my blog inspires you to mix and match designer items with fast fashion and to wear whatever you feel like – because that’s what personal style is all about!

My style is classic, simple, and always comfortable.  My favorite places to shop are ASOS, Forever 21, and Zara (just to name a few).  These are the brands I feature most frequently in my blog posts because of the affordable style options.  I also don’t shop a lot – gasp – so you may see a lot of items on repeat.  I’m a regular gal with bills, student loans, and a monthly budget so I can’t afford to buy new clothes all the time.

I was born and raised in San Francisco but I currently live in Napa with my mini schnauzer, Dexter (and I’m just a tiny bit obsessed with him).
