Woman of Style Amanda Griffin-Jacob Shares Her Tips On How To Be A Glam Mom
When you already have so many things on your plate, staying glam might be the last thing on your mind but trust us when we it can be easy and effortless—take it from Amanda!
When it comes to motherhood and parenting, Amanda Griffin-Jacob has proven that she has it all covered. On top of being a mother of four—Kieran, Kalon, Lila, and Kyle—she is also a doting wife, a yogi and runner, green living advocate, and founder of the Glam-o-Mamas community.
Glam-o-mamas started from the mommy community that Amanda built from her blog. It’s all about sharing tips and inspiration with her fellow mothers, like a support group for everyone within the community.
Juggling several things as a mother is never easy. And especially for Amanda, as an influencer and content creator, she has the additional challenge to stay beautiful and camera-ready all the time. But this Woman of Style proves that staying glam as a mother shouldn’t be hard: you just have to know what works for you.
Here are her top tips for staying glam, whenever, wherever.
Stay healthy and stylish with a color-coordinated athleisure combo
Amanda leads a very healthy and active life. She is a proud yogi and runner, who makes sure she gets the exercise she needs in a week. She also likes going to the beach and going to places for adventures to stay active.
Exercise is an opportunity to feel good about yourself. That’s why looking good in whatever athleisure outfit your activity requires is part of taking care of yourself. Her tip: stick with colors that you like and color coordinate or color block them. On top of being super comfortable, these look nice in photos, too!
Add vibrant pops of color and accessories
When donning a monotone or simple ensemble, the best way to give it some flair is by adding statement accessories. For Amanda, it’s statement earrings, which draw people’s attention to the face. When you have the right earrings to match your outfit, it helps give that sophisticated look—perfect for a casual affair or something more formal.
Switch up your everyday look with prints and patterns
If you’re just going out to run errands, you can still look and feel good about yourself—while staying comfortable, of course. Harness the power of prints and patterns so you can stay cool and relaxed as you go about your business, all while looking stylish.
Spruce up your wardrobe with fun and feminine dresses
When you’re a mom, you have the littlest of time to spend on yourself because you’re taking care of everything that’s going on around the house. Imagine the chaos when Amanda needs to pack for a trip with her four little angels! But when you have nice and fun dresses, you don’t have to spend so much time thinking about which outfits to wear and bring. Easy glam!
