Stereotypical Outfit Post: SK8R GRL Edition

Skate culture is not something that I necessarily associate with NYC.  As a product of a foreign land called Orange County, aka “the OC,” I am not a stranger to skater boys, or Vans shoes.  Or perhaps we discuss decks, trucks, and Wahoo’s Fish Taco?

When my friend Greg asked me to attend the Vans BOWL-A-RAMA competition with him at Chelsea Piers, I was quick to say “DUH!”

Flashback to the 90s when I creepily stalked fellow tween hotties at the Vans Skatepark at the Block.  So fetch.

I definitely couldn’t miss out on a taste of California coolness in the Big Apple.  Major problem.  What to wear?!  Normally, cutoffs, a tee and flip flops would be acceptable, but this standard beach uniform would not suffice in an urban situation where walking is a necessity and one must be prepared for bipolar weather changes.

The outfit below fulfilled my needs.
1/2 beach hippie.  1/2 grunge.  100%  chill beeyotch.
