For those of you who have yet to experience Maine, this small-town profile will have you daydreaming about heading north-east! Julie O’Rourke, a native Mainer, lives on the charming mid-coast of Spruce Head Island with her partner Anthony, their adorable 1.5-year-old son Diogo, and dog Violet. There, the couple built a beautiful home surrounded by family and friends, and a new apparel business for children and babies called Rudy Jude (which we know you’ll love!), launching later this month. Hear O’Rourke’s refreshing take on motherhood, relationships, and style, and get a glimpse of her laid-back world, below.

Loved this story about Julia! She’s so badass and inspiring. I especially admire her perspective on the home and she’s totally right. Your things should adapt to your lifestyle not the other way around. After all, change is a good thing in every aspect of life, so why try and kill yourself to make your space look perfect? Also, I’m totally going back to Maine.
