I am so intrigued by the way other women put themselves together, especially while leading remarkably busy lives. Amber Wagner redefines busy. She is a fashion designer based in Napa Valley, California. Her swimwear line, Mia Marcelle, offers minimal yet sophisticated styles with exotic details and prints.  Oh, and she’s also a mom of 6. Yes, 6. Read on for her mom style secrets.

What is your secret to getting dressed on a busy morning?

A good cup of coffee kickstarts my day in the right direction.

How long does it take you to get ready?

Having 6 kids, I stick to a very strict schedule so that we can get out the door in the mornings.  Everyone has a job with the older kids helping younger kids.  My morning routine is pretty minimal…Workout clothes and tinted sunscreen.

Name your favorite shops/favorite brands?

BCBG, Christian Louboutin shoes, Nordstrom.

Amber's style musts include Christian Louboutin shoes, Hudson jeans, Dermaquest tinted sunscreen, her own swimwear line, Mia Marcelle, BCBG and plenty of coffee.

How has motherhood changed your style? Any mom style secrets?

I started having children when I was 24, and as I have aged, my style naturally has become more chic and sophisticated…

Name 5 things you can’t live without.

My husband, my children, coffee, wine, warm weather.

Do you wear makeup every day?

I wear tinted sunscreen and a bronzer on my cheeks.  Easy, natural, and still put together looking.

What is one thing you do every day to pamper yourself?

Go for a run. (Not everyday, but a few times a week).  We have 6 very small children, so an uninterrupted conversation with my husband is a real treat.

If you could only apply one makeup item, what would it be?

Dermaquest tinted sunscreen.

 Favorite denim brand?

Hudson….by a long shot.

 Color, neutrals, or both?

Definitely both and it depends on my mood.

 Name the one signature accessory you are never seen without.

A baby on my hip! My friends refer to me as the women who has lots of children and who wears “barely there” bikinis.

You don’t have to be a bikini-clad mom of 6 to benefit from Amber’s mom style secrets. Here, a few of my faves:

  • 1. Tinted sunscreen and a little bronzer are all you need for a healthy glow.
  • 2. A morning routine makes getting out the door with a large family a little more manageable.
  • 3. Energize yourself with coffee or a morning run.
