5 Ways to Add Some Edge to Your Wardrobe

I am the least edgy person around (honestly) but that doesn’t stop me from buying every spiked, studded, and zippered thing I can get my grubby little hands on. I have an inner badass just dying to come out (as long as there aren’t motorcycles involved. Too scary).

I love a mom outfit with a bit of edge. We can be soft and nurturing but still rock a spiked shoulder when the occasion calls for it! Here are some easy (and affordable!) ways to add a little edginess to your wardrobe.

    These spike-toed flats from Sam Edelman were a lucky find at Last Chance. They get a TON of wear. My little boys love them (they call them my "poke-y shoes").
