+ Craving summer while the weather's looking nothing but drab? Us too. Luckily, the new Vans x Leila Hurst collection has got us seeing sandy beaches and sunny skies—and it's available for purchase in stores and online now.

+ Harper Lee, the author of the much-loved To Kill a Mockingbird, still has some more words for us. The 88-year-old's second novel, a sequel to her first, will be published July 14

+ Former Editor-in-Chief of The New Gay has returned to writing, posting a segment of a new story titled "White Gayland, Pt. 1: Envy of the Dead" on his new website, TNG2.

+ Spring campaigns have their fair share of celebs and supermodels alike, but Iris Apfel and Karlie Kloss for Kate Spade may just be our favorite combo.
