These Winter Boots Will Change Your Flare Jean Game





Based on reader comments/questions/etc., most of you are generally thrilled that flare jeans are having a moment.  The biggest complaint, however, is footwear.  We’re all kinda partial to flats (sneakers, in particular), and while I’ve tried to address the flares + flats combo in the past, there’s no doubt that heels and flares are a match made in sartorial heaven.

So.  What would you say, dear readers, if I told you that I’ve found a pair of wedge boots that are as comfortable as my sneakers?  Like really, seriously comfortable – Scotti babywears in hers – while being high enough to rock the flare?  And that they’re both waterproof and warm?

Bold words, I KNOW.



This isn’t the first time we’ve mentioned these magical Sorel wedges on The Mom Edit before, but they’re so good (SO. GOOD.) I felt that a public service announcement was in order:

Sorel has create magic wedge boots to change your winter flare-wearing game forever.  They will spoil you for all other wedges to come.

Coat: DKNY

Sweater: Joe Fresh cashmere sweater (on crazy sale for $40) or this similar cashmere from LLBean

Blouse: Tuxe Bodywear The Coach (size S)

Jeans: JBrand Lovestory Flares (70% off) also available here on major sale.  I’m also seriously digging the wash on this similar pair of flared Joe’s Jeans.

Boots: Sorel 1964 Premium Wedge Boots (or Sorel’s Joan of Arctic Wedges if you’d rather a single color – they’re basically the same)

Lest you think these boots aren’t cute enough to shine on their own….



….I especially love them with boyfriend jeans.  (Or ‘girlfriend jeans’.  Tomato tomahto.)








Outfit Details

Coat: Similar Iro leather jacket – Iro really makes the best leather jackets, but they’re crazy expensive.  When I was searching last year, I was reasonably impressed with Madewell’s leather jacket and the leather jackets from All Saints.  I especially like the look of this one.

SweaterBoden Relaxed V Cashmere Sweater (size 2, mushroom melange)

Jeans: Rag and Bone Dre (33% off – mine are an older wash, I linked to the newer one…but order down one size – they run big)

Boots: Sorel 1964 Premium Wedge Boots (or Sorel’s Joan of Arctic Wedges if you’d rather a single color – they’re basically the same)

Accessories:  Prada sunnies, Rebecca Minkoff Fringe Julian Backpack, Pyrrha Necklace

Stroller: Quinny Yezz (c/o Quinny and I freaking LOVE it.  Super light, folds like a dream, and handles public transport like a champ.)


The exact colorway of my Sorel wedges is long gone, but I might actually like the black/bluff combo even better.  In any case, these are amazing wedges.  Shockingly high, given the comfort, yet they feel like a very low heel.  I have a pair, Scotti has a pair, my nanny Gwen has a pair….and we all wear them to the park/babywearing/running around with the kiddos.  They’re even good for all-day walking.

Anyone else have a pair?  Do you love them as much as we do?
