About Allie Wears

Allie Wears, a passion project that I started years ago, is a life and style blog based in Raleigh, NC. I describe my style as comfortable, casual and colorful. I like to wear what makes me both look good and feel good. My style has evolved since starting this blog, but one thing has remained true: my love for the sale rack. I have an innate ability to find great items on major sale – a trait I’m especially fond of. Being able to dress great while on a budget should be a task conquered by all and I hope my blog inspires you to do so.

When I’m not working full-time or blogging on the side (more on that here), you can find me doing one of the following:

  • Spending time with my hubby, Ryan
  • Spoiling our two boys, Oliver, a pit-bull we rescued in 2019, and Willy, a mini-pig
  • Fostering a puppy (or two) or volunteering at our local animal shelter, WCAC
  • Exploring downtown Raleigh or a local city
  • Helping local small businesses with digital marketing with my side gig, Allie Online
  • Cooking a veggie dish found on Pinterest while gulping down a chilled glass of Pinot Nior – yum!
  • Moving my body (find my favorite at-home workouts here)
  • Cleaning.. this girl loves to clean!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that the content I create inspires you.. and your life!


Who does my hair?

I can’t say enough great things about my girl Ashley, who I found on Instagram. Be sure to mention me and get 15% off!

What sizing am I?

I’m 5’9″, weigh roughly 135 lbs and tend to wear a size Small or Medium in tops and bottoms, sizes 4 in dresses and size 28 in jeans.

Do I have any advice on starting a blog?

“If not now, when?” That’s my favorite quote that has played a large part in some big decisions throughout my life. If you’re thinking about starting a blog, just do it! I shared WHY you should start a blog in this post and 10 tips on how to go about starting a blog in this post. There are also so many great articles online, especially on Pinterest.

How do I make money?

I charge for my time, whether it’s a style post featuring a specific brand, an Instagram post endorsing a product, or an event that I am attending. I also work with a third-party affiliate linking site, which means if you buy a product that I feature on my blog or social media channels, I make a small (very small) commission!
