Dressing The Baby: Supermarket Style!

 For this weeks Dressing The Baby I thought I would feature two of my current favourite outfits for Tyne...which both happen to be from George @ Asda!

When I shop for myself, my taste in labels is very varied - I love designer gear and don't mind paying a high price for quality clothes. But equally, I can really appreciate a bargain and I find that some of the clothes at supermarkets like Asda and Tesco are actually really nice - trendy and good quality at a really reasonable price! I always have a browse of the clothes sections whenever I go in.

And my taste is very much the same when it comes to dressing Tyne - I do love designer gear, and will happily splash out on Baby Baker and Tutto Piccolo outfits (I'm currently eyeing up a personalised Ralph Lauren outfit!) - but equally, I think supermarkets sell some really lovely baby clothes.

I particularly like Asda's range of baby clothes and so this week, I am featuring two of my favourite outfits of Tyne's which were both from Asda.

The first is this lovely cotton dungaree and vest set which cost £8.00 - it consists of a white short sleeved vest with blue piping around the sleeves, and brushed cotton dungarees in baby blue with white stripes.

The suit is from the "Max & Millie" range and features the cartoon character bear along with some other drawings, and a cute little pocket on the right hip.

As always, I appreciate the little details when it comes to baby outfits and on this one in particular I love the little popper buttons which are printed with a bear face and the "Max & Millie" name.

I paired this outfit with Tyne's baby blue knitted booties, which were a perfect match!

The second outfit I have chosen this week is this super cute "Born In 2013" romper suit which is a bargain for just £4!! 

I paired it with Tyne's tiny little teddy bear booties (Marks & Spencer, 50p in the sale!) as I'm worried that he'll be growing out of these soon and I adore them!

The outfit is very lightweight so perfect for the warmer weather we've been having, and I think it will make a lovely keepsake for his memory box!

What do you think of Tyne's outfits this week?! Don't forget to join us next week for another Dressing The Baby post!


  1. They are both really lovely outfits xx

  2. Very cute!!! I haven't been to check out Asdas in ages! Need to go now!


  3. Aww, too cute! I always think the supermarkets have a good range of baby stuff, definitely a good alternative to the pricier stuff in Next/M&S!

  4. Ooo Nathan's best friend bought Oscar the 'Born in 2013' romper suit! It's so cute and definitely one that I'll be putting away to treasure forever when he's outgrown it :D

    Yesterday Nathan popped to Tesco and came back with clothes for both Stacey and Oscar. I really do think that you can pick up some great bargains in supermarkets, and they're such a lifesaver for those who don't have time to be trawling from shop to shop looking for clothes then need to do a food shop after!
