To Read: Are You Good with Numbers?

Don’t worry: these books will not—we repeat: will NOT—dredge up any panic-at-the-whiteboard memories.

(We hope.)

There’s something in these numerical titles for everyone’s mathematical ability, even if English class was more your speed. (Especially if English class was more your speed.)

Introducing the Waterway Collection

We took five favorites for a quick dip, and they’re more refreshing than ever.

We took five favorites for a quick dip, and they’re more refreshing than ever. A few favorite silhouettes—Welty, Bensen, Piper, Griffin, and Percey—get a kick in the pants (temples?) with shoreline shades like Sand Castle and Marine Pebble.

Introducing the Waterway Collection—inspired by warm coastal travels and landlocked staycations by the pool. Because summer is for relaxing.

12 Questions: Petra Collins

We asked the photographer—she shot our Beacon Collection; pretty, don’t you think?—about teenagers, overalls, and getting the boot from Instagram:

We asked the photographer—she shot our Beacon Collection; pretty, don’t you think?—about teenagers, overalls, and getting the boot from Instagram:

I wake up to my boyfriend’s annoying alarm clock that is on permanent snooze mode in the morning.

I take my coffee black.

My feminist icon is Malala Yousafzai.

My favorite thing about wearing overalls is feeling like a farmer.

The number of times I’ve been kicked off Instagram is once and it made me feel like [EXPLETIVE].

Tumblr is the website I visit most, other than the usual stuff like email.

I never leave home without my phone and a charger.

I love making art.

I looooooove riding in cars listening to music.

Photographing teens forever is my dream.

Right now, I’m listening to If It’s Lovin’ That You Want by Rihanna.

I go to sleep with thoughts of food dancing in my head.
