Former BLDG co-owner, current P&G design manager, and one-time viral sensation (just Google her), Lesley Amann rocks jeans and red lips—and always looks put together.
You are a married, working mom of three: Olivia, 7; Kaizer, 4; and Nash, 10 months. What’s your go-to outfit when you’re running late? I’m a jean junkie. They work for any occasion, whether it’s something casual or more professional. I’ll pair them with booties (my other obsession), a blouse, and a swipe of red lipstick.
What are your favorite brands? Madewell, Zara, H&M. I tend to invest in staples and fill in with trends. When it comes to red lipstick, I love NARS Jungle Red and Heat Wave. For some reason, a red lip makes me feel like I’m ready to take on the world.
Anyone else find strength in color? Kaizer loves yellow. He would wear it every single day if I let him. He’s just so happy when he’s wearing it.
And Olivia? In the last few years she has started to be more expressive with her style. I pick my battles.
Any style icons? Not really, though I love to see what other moms are wearing. Right now one of my favorites on Instagram is Kelle Hampton. She’s a mom of three, and she’s still rockin’ it. When I was pregnant with Nash we found out he had Down syndrome, and someone recommended I check out her site. Reading her blog changed the way I felt about something that was going to completely alter my life, and in a way that maybe I didn’t want. Obviously I connected with her on a level that was much deeper than fashion.
