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.
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.
