Happy ‘Stay Out Of The Sun’ Day

Happy National ‘Stay Out Of The Sun’ Day!

As Irish people we get very excited about sunshine, it’s a rarity to have such great weather and lovely heat.

But before we get too excited we need to be reminded of the dangers of the sun and being in it without protection.

We highly recommend covering up as much as possible and wear high SPF anywhere that your skin is exposed to the Sun.

A sun hat is also extremely important to protect your scalp from the hot rays. So before you go running out to the beach or sunbathing in your garden, here a few things you should be aware of…

Drink lots of water!drink water

The sun and heat can make you very dehydrated. Keep sipping that water throughout the day,especially if you are in it for the day.

Wear Sunscreen!

  • Follow the guideline of “one ounce, enough to fill a shot glass”, when it comes to how much sunscreen you should use.
  • Apply the sunscreen to dry skin 15 minutes BEFORE going outdoors.
  • Re-apply sunscreen approximately every two hours or after swimming or sweating heavily according to the directions on the bottle.

Cover up!

We recommend:

  • Wearing a wide-brimmed sunhat that covers and protects your face and shoulders.
  • Wearing long cover ups that are light enough to keep you cool in the heat, but long enough to cover arms and legs.

Our Most Popular Style

As a fashion hub of Sligo, Mullaney Brothers is bursting with style that suit many different tastes and personalities, body shapes and colouring, but the one type of outfit that has stood the test of time and wins as a favourite staple of womens wardrobes everywhere, is the black dress.

“One is never over-dressed or underdressed with a Little Black Dress.” – Karl Lagerfeld

This Viz-a-Viz black dress is perfect for Summer as it’s made from light and breathable material. PLUS there is a 30% OFF sale on selected Viz-a-Viz lines. Discover what else is in our Summer Sale HERE.

Our favourite part of this dress is that you can wear it with heels and glam it up for dinner and drinks, or you can throw on a pair of slingback sandals and wear while touring the town on a lunch time shopping spree.

Add the wide-brimmed Sun hat and a pair of sunglasses where you’ll look like you just parked your yacht at the Sligo Quayside after a coastal trip of the Riviera!

Black is one of the easiest colours to add accessories to.

We have added a touch of dusky pink and Salmon hues to set off this look with a light shawl and cardigan.

We have added a large quilted patent handbag for daytime, and a smaller black chain handle handbag for a night time look.

If you need style advice on what to wear for your Summer event, leave us a message or comment on our Facebook page.

Protect Yourself Against the Elements

natureRain and wind – two constant companions in the outdoors of Ireland. If you’re keen on getting out this summer, make sure that you’re protected against the elements

Protect your Face!

Over the summer, everyone knows to use some sun protection to prevent against sunburn and those nasty UV rays. But you still need protection from the sun on overcast days also. We recommend taking a small bottle of sun cream on hikes and bike rides, and apply as necessary. UV glasses will protect your eyes and remove glare from your vision on days with changeable weather.

It’s not just the sun your face needs protecting from though – wind  can cause significant damage as well – leading to dry, chapped or burned skin. For keen hikers and walkers using clothing over exposed areas of your face will help prevent damage.

If you’re going to be exploring in hotter climes, do make sure that you take plenty of water during the day, and have a hat to prevent against sunstroke.

Upper Body Protection

The elements can also damage skin on the upper body while walking and especially cycling. Again, we recommend appropriate sun cream at all times, and wearing a breathable material that allows moisture out, but not in, keeping you cool and dry.
