Ralph Lauren Layette Review

I think my brother and sister-in-law are hiding a secret. I think their daughter will be getting a little brother or sister in about 6 months! But they're not saying anything, and I'm not in the Philippines right now to grill either of them, so I'm just going to have to wait for their official announcement. Luckily, I'm all set to celebrate, because Ralph Lauren sent me some of their gorgeous baby outfits to review. They will make the perfect present for the new baby! Here's what I received, and what I thought:

Solid White Coverall

The Basics
Here's a rundown of the Ralph Lauren Solid White Coverall:
Retail Price: $25
Sizes: 3 mos, 6 mos, 9 mos

Also available in Morning Pink and Pearl Blue

Essential long-sleeved footed coverall in soft cotton jersey.

* Ribbed neckline and cuffs with fold-over detail.

* Ring snaps at front and leg openings for easy on and off.

* Turn-back cuffs fold over your infant's hands to prevent scratches.

* Our tonal embroidered pony accents the chest.

* 100% cotton. Machine washable.

The Bongga
This is a nice basic item that every baby should have -- except it's not so basic, it's a Ralph Lauren outfit! Which means the material is nice and soft, and the white logo is as subtle as the style. I really like the fact that it's tagless, with no bits of material to irritate baby's neck.

The Blah
For the price, I found this item a bit too basic, with no distinctive style elements other than the white embroidered Ralph Lauren logo.

The Bottom Line
The Ralph Lauren Solid White Coverall is a baby basic that's anything but basic -- it's the perfect present because it's practical and it has the cachet of a luxury item.

Cotton Cable Hat & Bootie Set

The Basics
Here's a rundown of the Ralph Lauren Cotton Cable Hat & Bootie Set:
Retail Price: $65.00
Sizes: One size

Also available in Morning Pink and Pearl Blue

Adorable baby's hat and bootie set knit in soft, hearty cabled cotton.

* Cable-knit hat with ribbed fold-over brim and seamed crown for a snug fit.
* Cabled booties have a ribbed fold-over ankle cuff with a delicate cord woven through and tied at the ankle and textured knit sole.

* 100% cotton. Machine washable

The Bongga
This set is so distinctively Ralph Lauren! The cute little hat looks just like something a grownup might wear, with that gorgeous, classic cable knitting, but it actually enhances their "babyness" and makes them look even more adorable (maybe it's that snow-white color!). I don't normally like seeing booties on babies because I think they make the baby's legs and feet look even scrawnier and smaller in proportion to the rest of their body than they already are -- but these booties have chunkier ankle cuffs and a real shape to them, so I think they look more rad than ridiculous.

The Blah
It's a Ralph Lauren clothing item and unlike the coverall I received, it's meant to be seen, so I'd love to show off the Ralph Lauren logo a bit more!

The Bottom Line
It's never too early to get your baby looking stylish and chic, and there's no better way to do it than by slipping on these hat and booties from Ralph Lauren.
