Coming from the very tropical Philippines, I look at summers in a very different perspective. If summer spells “baking hot” here in Saudi Arabia, summer in the Philippines spells “sizzling hot”. Haha! My vision is filled with scenes from the beach, colorful towels, iced cocktails, bandanas, sunnies, and flip-flops! People are outdoors during summer in our archipelago. It’s a bit of a bummer that summer in Saudi Arabia forces us to retreat in the comfort of our air-conditioned indoors. But I’m not complaining because AC is my love! Haha! Besides, there are things that always remind me that somewhere out there, a tropical summer is waiting for all of us. Like these flip-flops from Aeropostale, for example. I was at the store a few days ago and they caught my eye because they’re so colorful. The designs spell summer all-day, all-year long. Any where.
Here are some designs that caught my eye:
Don’t just remind you of beautiful summers? The original price of these flip-flops is SR 50 a pair (I know, I know, they’re just slippers, haha) but if you catch Aeropostale on sale, they usually have them in 50% off. They’re currently on sale until the end of Ramadan so check ’em out now! But wait, there are more items in Aeropostale that will remind you of the vivid hues of summer (aka more reasons to visit the shop).
There are still a lot of people asking where Aeropostale is, even though we’ve probably featured the shop many times in our Facebook already, haha! It’s in Olaya street near the Saudi Hollandi Bank and opposite the new Alakaria Mall. The map is below. Happy summer, Riyadhizens!
