It’s possibly a uniquely Irish clothing combination; a panama hat (or other sun hat) and a fleece or softshell. I can’t think of too many other places where it’d ever be an appropriate dress code. Sweden, perhaps, or the North East coast of England in the summer. Texel maybe.
In any case, it was the perfect solution to Ireland’s recent “heatwave”. Air temperatures of 14 degrees, but not a cloud in the June sky. Instead of being freezing cold AND sunburned, you can be warm and un-toasted. A really good solution. Mind you, wearing a panama hat does still seem to cause some socio-economic assumptions in Ireland.
Apart from that, we had a week where the Irish climate tried (briefly) to redeem its reputation in our household. After showing wintry photos of Dun Laoghaire harbor in May, here’s a tropical photo in June.
