Hi! Thanks for visiting my fashion blog. My name is Allyson Burgess. I was born and raised right outside of Nashville, Tennessee and have had the desire (for as long as I can remember) to standout with what I wear. I fell in love with vintage clothing and thrift shopping at a young age, but it wasn’t until I moved to Chicago for college that I started exploring the more artistic side of fashion (thanks to my roommate Kiona!)

This space, Authentically Allyson, is all about inspiring women to make bold style choices to instill confidence in their personal and professional lives. As a daughter of a female entrepreneur, I grew up seeing the power of a woman with a dream, and I hope that this platform encourages women to get outside their comfort zones.

I find style inspiration from the places I travel and the cities I’ve been lucky enough to call home (Nashville, Chicago, Budapest, San Francisco, and now New York!).

Please drop me an email or Instagram message if there is anything you would like to see more of or an occasion you need style advice for! I would love to help.
