So, before we get started with all the fashion, food, and good times, we need to clear the air a little bit. You may have noticed that we were pretty silent this Spring. As fast approaching college graduates and members of the "real world", our list of to-dos seemed never ending. So, sadly, we took a hiatus from the blog world to put school first as we finished up our senior year at Wheaton College. Thankfully our hard work paid off, and we can now say that we are officially college graduates! This means two things: we are expected to do this whole "job" thing full time, and more importantly, we have a bit more time on our hands to devote to the things we love (all of you, of course!). Thanks for sticking with us, now let's get back to the regularly scheduled programming. This means more fashion, more food, and more Chi-city lovin' in the posts to come!
Since summertime in our minds equates adventure, we are taking you "On the Road" with us as we share some of our travels with you! In typical S&S fashion, this will include plenty of "nom"-worthy food photos, beautiful places, and also some summer trends that we have been loving lately. Hope you enjoy! And as always, if there is something you'd like us to write about, please let us know!

Lauren's Tribal Jumpsuit | Hilton Head Island
Last week, I embarked on a much needed getaway to my family’s vacation home in Hilton Head Island, just my mom and me. It was a perfect week of wine, girl talk, good food, and time spent soaking up the sun. It was made even sweeter by the last minute visit of a wonderful college friend, who drove down from Tennessee to spend a couple days with us. We had such a great time biking in the mornings, lounging at the beach, and just enjoying the simplicity that is island life. When packing for the beach, I usually tend to throw shorts, tanks and swimsuits in a bag and call it a day. However, this time I had a couple special pieces that had been hiding in the back of my closet for way too long (I'm lookin' at you, Chiberia) and thought this was the perfect occasion to bring them out. One of these special items just so happens to be the shining star of today's post. My mom found this funky, tribal print jumpsuit, by Peach Love California, at a boutique in our hometown. While I usually shy away from crazy prints, I absolutely love the way this jumpsuit looks and the easy breezy way it moves. This jumpsuit, paired with my trusty J.Crew bubble necklace, was the perfect ensemble for an evening spent dining "lowcountry style" with a moonshine cocktail in hand! What are some of your must-haves when beach bound? Let me know in the comments!
Next up, I'll be sharing some other looks from my beach trip, as well as my summer beauty favorites!
