Street Style: Balboa Park Free Tuesdays

Every Tuesday Balboa Park hosts free museums on a rotating basis. I try to make a point to attend each week. Recently I was able to stroll through MOPA free of charge while enjoying the photography of actress Jessica Lange. While visiting the park I ran into three well-dressed park goers.

None

Fashion student, Jay Lee is only visiting San Diego for one day before heading up to L.A and then back to Korea. Lee thought Balboa Park would be the best way to take in the city. Later in the day he had plans to go surfing.

"Surfing is on my bucket list. I have never surfed before. There are no surfing spots in Korea," The 21-year-old told me.

He wore jeans and a denim shirt from Uniqlo, and an H&M army green sweatshirt. He purchased his boots while in Canada. His bag is by Korean brand Xero.

"I love Uniqlo," he told me. Uniqlo is an H&M style Japanese discount retailer.

None

I found international student Kyunghoon Baek near the organ pavilion. His Sweater and shirt are from Uniqlo. His vivid Kelly-green jeans are Abercrombie, and his shoes are Fubu.

Baek is studying in San Diego for Two weeks before heading back home to Korea.

None

While Heather Musni waited for her lunch date at the Prado she told me that her least favorite trend is “guy hipster outfits”.

"I don't like guys in skinny jeans. And vintage clothes should actually be vintage. It shouldn’t cost $200 for your clothes to look old," she said.

Musini is a credit analysist at a local bank. She wore a cobalt blue Tory Burch purse. You can find a similar version at Bloomingdales for $335. She paired her Gucci sunglasses with a Banana Republic shirt dress, Steve Madden boots, and tights from Uniqlo.

"My favorite store is Banana Republic. It's versatile. I can wear their clothes to work and out on the weekends too," the 30-year-old told me.
