Besides sharing a middle name, birthday, and hometown of New Orleans, Katie Elizabeth Dumestre (left) and Rachel Elizabeth Adams (right) can also relate on their casual chic style seen on their blog The Elizabeth Chronicles. Feminine silhouettes meet tomboy comfort for these busy ladies, and when they’re not reporting from the front row of NOLA Fashion Week they’re cultivating their Southern-inspired T-shirt line.
Here, Katie Elizabeth and Rachel Elizabeth dish on where to shop in the Crescent City and Southern designers they’re loving right now.

KE: “I channel a tomboy chic look, but I’ll never pass an occasion to whip out a sorbet-colored vintage frock.”
RE: “It’s about being effortless. My go-to look is a TEC (The Elizabeth Chronicles) tee, denim, and a great pair of heels, but the Southern gal in me will opt for a dress too.”
New Orleans state of mind: “NOLA has a relaxed vibe that we incorporate into our looks. From the rich culture to the hospitable locals, it’s a great place to be inspired and live.”
KE: “A great pair of sneakers and perfect fitting denim.”
RE: “Heels with denim.”
Made in the South:
KE: Billy Reid can do no wrong in my eyes, especially with menswear. (Maybe that’s where my tomboy style comes from!)
RE: Camilyn Beth defines a Southern girl with a touch of glam. Every piece in her collection includes an inspirational quote sewn inside. I love when designers make their pieces personable.
A Southern woman never leaves the house without: Sunscreen. The sun is mighty brutal down here and we don’t want any wrinkles!”
