We know that being a mom is much more than a job. It’s a full-time-never-get-a-break-don’t-put-that-in-your-mouth-no-means-no-lifestyle filled with ups and downs, laughs and tears and memories by the minute. Sure, it can be confusing and completely overwhelming at times, but hey, that’s why we’re here.
The two Jen’s originally created this site, and now a team of moms with different views will add to this daily blog. Our goal is to make this the ultimate resource for Charlotte moms and moms-to-be on a variety of activities, events and motherhood-related topics (best deals on hip new products, navigating the school systems, kids eat free, etc). This is a place for us to share as well as our readers, and we don’t pretend to know everything here. But, we’ll try our best to provide you with plenty of info we’ve learned through research, trial and, unfortunately, error.
What’s Courtenay’s story? I want to know more about Jen. I think I know Krista from somewhere, but where? Find out everything you ever wanted to know (and some things you didn’t) about our talented and insightful bloggers who know an awful lot about kids’ stuff and the latest goings on around town. We’re moms, wives, co-workers, friends, people in the know and, best of all, your guides on this crazy little thing we call Charlotte Smarty Pants.
Smarties, if you haven’t tuned in this week, you are WAY behind! Make sure you log on from Sunday to Saturday this week – we are unveiling our Smarty favorite fall fashion designers and YOU get to enter to win something each day! Don’t be afraid to enter every single day!
Today we present Gretchen Scott Designs!
Last summer I stumbled upon Gretchen Scott boutiques on my two vacations, first in Southampton, NY and then in Jupiter, Florida. Come to find out, these are the only two locations in the country that have a Gretchen Scott boutique – and both were in my summer travels halfway across the country. It was serendipity and I was smitten.
I fell in love with Gretchen’s tunics at first sight and have grown my collection all year. The bright contrasting patterns are the perfect accompaniment to my favorite jeans ever, my white jeans. And I’m still wearing them way past Labor Day, read this post on how we have officially been set free of white jean jail.
The new Fall 2012 line is fabulous. Winter colors are typically dreary to me, but Gretchen Scott always adds that perfect splash of color that I need in my day. Don’t trap this pink & green girl in black for the winter – I want pinks, navy’s, browns, and patterns. Here is Gretchen’s motto:
LAUGH MORE.. GRIPE LESS.. IGNORE CRITICS.. SAY YES.. ORDER DESSERT.. LOVE LIFE..
One thing is certain, Gretchen Scott Designs will make you happy:-)
