Get the Edge

This season’s hottest trends, the hippest of the hip, the coolest of the cool, the absolute MUST haves …
It’s all about … lace and crochet, nautical, anything white. Actually it’s all about a little overwhelming trying to keep up with the spring trends. What’s a girl to do with so many options, so many strollers/carpools/mouths to feed and so little time?

We are partial to shoes for that warbdrobe update – they suit moms with children of any age from in utero to in university. So we set out to narrow your search and give you the edge on the right pair of shoes for spring. It’s all about the wedge this season, and they’re great for moms if you want the height of a heel with the stability of a platform.

Our high-end choice is from designer Michael Kors who’s doing his best to be more accessible to us regular folk with his MICHAEL Michael Kors line. His toe ring espadrille sandals will look great with jeans or your fave new (lace, apparently) skirt. Available at Browns and Holt Renfrew stores across Canada. For about $150, you can make a little designer statement.

If you are looking for a lower price point, you might consider the Shoe Company. We all know and love the stores but did you know if you order online, they’ll ship your shoes to you? It’s a wedge girl’s online outlet heaven. Who knew?
Find yourself in the Gap more times than you should be? Make sure to stop by on April 18th – our sources have revealed that that’s when their fast-selling cork thong wedge will be available in Canadian stores. They are lower (and safer) for moms with babies growing inside or outside them. They’ll even take you to the park. They might not last forever, but for $24.50 they’re just what you need until you discover the next “you’ll-die-without-them” pair.

So get the (w)edge – don’t go over it.
