Cristina Campos

At Balboa Park on a sunny afternoon, both Michaela Wilbanks and Cristina Campos stood out amongst the park’s stunning architecture in lady-like florals.

Jewelry and canvas tote

Floral is no longer just a summer and spring staple. For those hoping to transition the romantic trend into the fall and winter months, it can be pulled off with dark prints on pants, dresses, and skirts. Floral print is a trend that refuses to die.

Nineteen-year-old Cristina Campos wore thrifted floral print pants in pastel. She paired them with RayBans, a basic navy tee from Cotton-On, one-of-a-kind jewelry, and a simple canvas bag.

While Campos is a fan of floral print, she would love to see the high-waisted denim short trend come to an immediate end. Her favorite local shopping spot is $2 Thrills in Ocean Beach.

Michaela Wilbanks

Michaela Wilbanks wore a Roxy Maxi dress from Plato’s Closet in Escondido paired with thrift store jewelry.

The 19-year-old SDSU journalism major has a wrist tattoo that reads “La vita è bella” which means "Life is beautiful" in Italian.

“It covers up a scar. I used to be a cutter. This is the only tattoo I will get, so I wanted it to be meaningful,” Wilbanks explained.

Wilbank’s favorite wardrobe pieces are her collection of vintage jewelry. “I love thrift stores!”
