As a stylist who explores what makes women feel beautiful, entrepreneur and Instagram favorite @HilaryRushford brings her witty, winsome, and wise voice to honest conversations on how to have an extraordinary life (without being exhausted): More joy and less overwhelm in your style, business, and life. You’re welcome (wink), in advance.
“I’ve tried capsule collections, buying better quality, buying cheaper items… I spend so much time shopping, returning, and yet never feel like I have enough or the right things in my closet. Help!”
Today’s DM from a reader has so much more depth than you’d imagine in our question to find more joy, less overwhelm, in our beauty.

Listen in to hear the breakthrough that comes when we truly explore where our fears are coming from, the lies we’re believing, and the truth that would actually bring us more peace and joy.
Then use these 10 Q’s for your own questions:
Am I doing enough?
What will be enough?
