I feel it important to tell you this post may contain affiliate links or press samples. All opinions are 100% my own.

Is it just me, or does the majority of the late first and early second trimester of pregnancy just look like you have a massive food baby? I am forever in search of non-maternity clothes that can both hide or rock a growing bump (that may or may not be 10% baby, 90% tacos.) I love these flowy tunics from for this exact reason.

Want to show off a new baby bump?

Perfect. There is is!

Have a pooch to hide?

Perfect. Hidden.

Currently in the in-between stage at 15 weeks pregnant with my second little munchkin, so during a usual day my answer to “show the bump?” goes back and forth several times.

I received a blush and indigo tunic from Simplicity USA complimentary in exchange for my honest review, and I can honestly say I love them. Super soft and flowy, go well with a pair of skinnies (these are maternity skinnies) and come in so many colors!

BUMP, there it is!
Eh, no baby there. Just a few too many tacos/Girl Scout cookies, right?

These tunics can be found here, and come in a variety of colors.

Here are the full details to my entire outfit, plus a couple alternatives that look similar. I linked both some maternity and non maternity jeans, too! (Maternity jeans are the world’s biggest struggle, I swear.) Eventually I will get this fancy Like to Know It stuff down, but for now I will just throw a list of links at you.

Several of these pieces I bought during previous seasons, so I linked similar options that are great buys.

TunicsРthis will take you to the page of all the colors. Here is the direct link to the one shown above! I purchased a size medium. Sizing ranges from Small-3X and is true to size. Maternity friendly, I sized up one size to keep this flowy during my whole pregnancy, and with the length I can totally tell I will be able to wear it up to 40 weeks. With my coupon code, the tunics are just hovering around $24!

Jeans-¬†I LOVE Tilly’s. I don’t know what it is about it, but I always find the best stuff in their Clearance section. I buy so many pairs of jeans there, and most of the time their clearance is 30-60% off. The jeans from this outfit are from Tilly’s, and are a size 3. I have washed the heck out of those things, and they are still going strong.

$17, plus 30% off. I almost always wear a size down in anything from Tilly’s.¬†This pair¬†I would purchase in a size 3. My typical size is a 4/5. Check out their Clearance section, they currently have some awesome deals on denim.

$34, plus additional 20% off with code EXTRA20! These¬†are my favorite wash of denim. I love full-panel belly bands in jeans myself, and Kohl’s has always been my favorite for finding those. Fit is true to size- purchase your pre-pregnancy size!

Booties- I bought the pictured ankle boots two Christmases ago at Kohl’s on Black Friday/Cyber Monday for a grand total of $11. (Crazy, huh?) While these are obviously not available anymore from Candies, I linked a couple other booties I own or other options I liked below.

$16.48!! I love a good pair of flat ankle boots, but I also almost paired my lace up wedge booties with this outfit today. These are surprisingly comfortable. Here is the pair that I own!

Then here is a pair of Clearance ankle boots from Tilly’s that I’m seriously considering buying myself… as if I don’t already have enough tan shoes.

My faux suede ones have held up exceptionally well through the winters. I would expect no less of these.

Accessories- 

My layered necklace came from Rue21 this past summer- I actually really LOVE their jewelry selection. They occasionally run a 2/$10 sale, and I totally always wait until that sale pops up to buy, but I will shoot you a couple cute layered necklace links now- these run $5-$8.

You’ll quickly learn that rose gold everything is my fave.¬†This one caught my eye. Search “layered necklace” on their site- they have so many cute ones right now!

Lauren Conrad is also my jam with jewelry (okay, and with everything else she designs too…) When I worked at Kohl’s, I was seriously an LC addict.

I’m not even sure how many of¬†these¬†bracelets I own, but I love her layering/mixing bracelets. Kohl’s has a bunch on sale right now- these are my favorites.

Also, just for kicks, here is the phone case shown! (Just click on the photo to take you to the link- there are several different kinds of florals, all $9.99 for the iPhone 8 Plus!) I have had this one for 5 months and love the quality of the case.
