I just checked the calendar and realized we are midway through summer. How exactly did that happen? One minute I remember dreaming of warm weather with you and now I am stuck in heavy heat and humidity. While countless New Yorkers plan weekends in the Hamptons, I am excited for a trip down to Florida and the Caribbean next week.

This one doesn’t take much explanation: We love the Proenza Schouler PS1 and always have, and the excitement is palpable around here when new PS1s surface. We’ve been thinking for a while that the bag could use a few new shades, and it looks as though the Proenza team was right there with us.

If you are in the Northeast, then you are part of this intense heat wave we are all experiencing. I may be from South Florida, but there is something about the heat radiating off the buildings and through this concrete jungle that intensifies the temperature in a way I can not describe.

The craze over the Proenza Schouler PS1 has not died down and frankly, I do not want it to. I still love this bag and for spring I crave bright pops of color being incorporated into my wardrobe.

I didn’t think I’d ever see the day where I’d write two excited posts in one week about a wallet, of all things, but the boys at Proenza Schouler know how to get to me.

This may sound crazy, but I swear that when I first laid eyes on the Proenza Schouler PS1 Linen and Leather Clutch, the room immediately felt a few degrees cooler.

I don’t know if I’ve ever heard or read so much buzz over a wallet; the gentlemen at Proenza Schouler sure do know how to work the fashion hype machine for maximum effect. On Friday came an exclusive tidbit via Vogue.com that Jack and Lazaro would be releasing a new wallet on the company’s website Monday, along with a single stock photo and conspicuously lacking price information to make us all salivate over the weekend.

Charity for charity’s sake is always rewarding, but charity that rewards you with a Proenza Schouler PS1 Satchel made to your exact specifications is even better. Jack McCullough and Lazaro Hernandez, the creative duo behind Proenza Schouler, have stepped up to the plate to auction off the chance for one lucky bidder to design a PS1 all her own.

I am dreaming of the Proenza Schouler PS11 in Kelly Green to be that colorful piece in my spring and summer wardrobe.

We usually try to find a handbag or at least something handbag-related for our Want It Wednesday series, but sometimes, even the most ardent of bag lovers gets distracted by all of the other wonders that the fashion world has to offer.
