Sk8er Boi

2:55 PM Imke Db 29 Comments

Other nineties kids on here will most defenitely remember back when Avril Lavigne was still a rock chick and dominating all music hitlists, and in particular her song 'Sk8er Boi'. Re-listening this song while typing this and oh my, it still kicks ass and takes me back to many years ago, when I wished I was just half as cool as Avril Lavigne. 

And every time I read or hear fashion term 'skater skirt', my head automatically goes "I'm with the skater boy I said see ya later boy" so hence the title of this post. Secretely I'm hoping I'm not the only one that makes this link, haha! 

I've been looking for a cute skater skirt for literally ages, because for a tall girl like myself, skater skirts usually barely cover your bum, and look out of proportion (think long legs - tiny skirt, and I asure you, 90% of the times it looks plain weird on me, as if I'm trying on my little sister's clothes). But when browsing through H&M Divided racks in Antwerp, I found this cute grey skirt, tried it on, and decided that for 9.95 euros, this was one of the best bargains of the past few monts.

Recently my style tends to get darker & grungier, as in, I used to only wear pink & frilly clothes and jeans & leather were banned from my closet, but my style seems to shift a lot these days, hence this look that's completely out of the box for me. When I bought this skater skirt, I decided to go full-on Avril Lavigne style, and throw in leather, a cropped top & booties. 

Here's the link to Sk8er Boi, so you can all relive your teenage Avril crush. You're welcome.

  13. Oh my, this song evokes so many memories! I remember listening to it back in sixth grade when our English teacher played it and we were supposed to translate the text. I guess it was the first English song which meaning I understood! Your outfit toally matches the 90s vibe and you actually look a bit like Avril in these pics. And I'm in love with your crop top!

    1. OMG your English teacher was the coolest for sure! My language teachers only let us hear old & boring songs no-one voluntarely listens to, haha. So cool that Sk8erboi was the first English song you knew the meaning to! And thank you so much for that amazing compliment, that's such a nice thing to say! XO

  15. This song! I used to play it all the time, and I thought I was so cool for being "grungy" and listening to Avril Lavigne. Has she even come out with any new songs since?

    I love this outfit on you, especially the cropped top! I'd always struggle with skirts being too long, and making me look even shorter haha!

    1. Back in the day she was the coolest chick on earth, honestly. She did do a make-over and came out with pop songs that were quite awful and didn't sound like the old grungy Avril anymore :( One of the saddest moments of my life.. And aww thank you so much dear <3 Yes, I think everyone has their struggles, no body is perfect, and although I sometimes wish I were a bit shorter, I can honestly understand that being petite can't be all that easy either! ;) XO
