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.

When I booked our vacation, Net-A-Porter must have been alerted, because the teal Proenza Schouler PS1 popped up on the site that day. The color is perfectly reminiscent of the Carribean seas, into which I’ll be dipping my toes any day now.

The PS1 is now a household name, with many renditions in different colors, materials and sizes. As far as bright hues go, I always have a soft spot for the blue/green family. If I bought this Proenza Schouler bag, it would be a constant reminder of sunny summer days and relaxing summer vacations. And really, what more can you ask for in a bag? Buy via NAP for $1,595.

    I’m not a huge PS1 fan, but this color really does it for me. Do you think this bag is strictly spring/summer? NAP used a fall-like outfit to showcase this bag. I’m not sure how I feel about that…although I’d love to carry this bag year-round because the color is so beautiful!

    Out of the hundreds of gorgeous handbags out there, I am so disappointed about how much attention PurseBlog gives to this bag. I think its time has come and gone…

    Beautiful color! Too bad I just got the Military PS1. It is such a great style, and so comfortable to wear.
    I’ll Have to figure out a way to get a second one:)

    beautiful bag but i think it’s done. and done. and done. like the Balenciaga City bags… i think it’s time for an update… not just colors.. Balenciaga came up with the Giant hardware in gold and silver, they coated the hardware, made rose gold hardware, made exotics… stuff like that to keep it fresh… i hope the PS1 also undergoes a little tweak every now and then, just to keep it fresh.. coz you can buy a ton of BBags and you can reason out hardware, leather finish, exotic, and stuff. but all you can reason out for buying a PS1 is just color..

    I like the color, but I’m still not a fan of the bag.

    i love this bag in pictures. and i say that only because where i live there are no stores that i know who sell PS.
    i looks versatile and i love the size options as well as colours and textures.
    this one in particular is amazing. the colour looks vibrant.
    i enjoy the ps posts. thanks guys!
