Sidewalk Chic: Springtime in August

Name: Mandy Cole

Age: 28

Occupation: Mom, retail (at August), bookkeeper, stylist, and photographer

Spotted: Rogan+Loomstate Pop-Up Shop opening at August, 6:24 p.m.

Wearing: Banana Republic top, Marni pants, Miu Miu flats

What do you find most important when selecting an outfit? "Simple style with a bit of irony."

Favorite item you were wearing & why? "My Marni pants! They are so incredibly fabulous and ridiculous."

Where do you look for style inspiration? "Different cultures and times. Mixing and matching to find balance in the perfect outfit. (My 8-year-old daughter told me to write my heart which is a much better answer)"

Why we love her look: Cole offsets her muted spring ensemble with voluminous striped pants.

Where to get it: Pair Banana Republic's Cap-sleeve fitted blouse with Mango's navy Ancho Trousers and Aldo's Junko flats in cognac for a similar look that's easy on the wallet.
