We've been putting the Craghoppers Voyager Jacket to the test this season. This uncompromising hybrid softshell jacket is a thoroughbred performer. The GORE-TEX Windstopper fabric forms an impressive barrier on the gustiest of days, with a durable water-repellent finish that shrugs of showers, too. So perfect for spring summer adventures. We love the look and feel of this layer, it's been a handy and compact number to bring on any outing. This comes in at £150 from Craghoppers online.

With the mixed weather we've been having in Ireland we've been getting fit in the gym. That means we've also had to invest in some nice gym gear; a good sports bra is always essential and when it's a pretty little number like this Tommy Hilfiger Bekki block colour bra top we'd consider that a win! Match it with a Tommy Hilfiger Benni Mock Neck Top and not only will you look the part in the gym, you'll feel the part.
