MODERN MUSE: JULIA ROMERO

Julia is a model and first-time mother who recently welcomed her first daughter in early October. Julia brought A Pea in the Pod’s Fall Activewear Collection to life through a self-shot series. As a fashion industry veteran, she shares her perspective on style, and how it has changed through #40weeksofchic.

Baby’s Name & Birthdate: 

Paloma Sage Romero 10/4/2020 

Birth Story: 

Worth the 27 hours of labor 

Birthing Wisdom: 

I really wanted to go through the whole experience without any expectations. Every birth, and every person, is different, so I didn't have a birth plan. I wanted to leave it to the professionals, and I feel that I was able to enjoy it more this way.

Style Advice: 

Dress for yourself, not for anyone else. 

Personal Style: 

My everyday style is typically that of a quirky grandma. But I tend to like more preppy, colorful, fun and feminine styles. 

& How It’s Changed:  

It's definitely gotten simpler. I have a few very easy pieces that grew with me throughout pregnancy and I find myself still wearing them now postpartum. No time to put together anything difficult. 

Fashion Muse: 

Iris Apfel meets Carolina Herrera 

Favorite Designer: 

Oscar de La Renta. I worked with him and his team for 5 years before he passed away. He even taught me how to tie the perfect bow! 

Fashion Moment: 

Walking in Oscar de La Renta's final collection in the most beautiful cocktail dress. 

Favorite Piece from A Pea in the Pod:

I love the Paige Maternity Denim and the Beyond the Bump Bike Shorts. The denim looks great with flats and fits so nicely. I love wearing it with a chunky knit. The bike shorts are super comfy for working out and they look great with a black sports bra and zip up windbreaker or sweatshirt.

Next Adventure: 

I would love to go back to Europe and the Mediterranean in the summer. I would also love to go on a safari in Africa at some point. 

Staying Active:

Throughout my pregnancy, I alternated between hiking, swimming laps, and playing tennis. I actually played one of my best games of tennis a couple of hours before my labor began! 

Beauty Routine:

Lots of water and a really great moisturizer are essential. A little mascara and some tinted lip balm are all I wanted to wear this summer because it was so hot. 

Free Time:

Since I've had my baby my free time is spent cuddling! But before I had her all my free time was spent baking and creating recipes for others to share.
