So I chatted up this girl online for a date. I felt a really good connection, so I said let's go skating and grab some food. There is this cool roller skating rink where they play 80s music, it's cheesy but loads of fun.
Anyway, we meet up before hand, and she shows up dressed in like a turtleneck under a fur lined hoodie, and this big coat, hat, scarf, some kind of warm pant. Bundled.
I'm confused, it's warm out, we're going to a warm roller skating arena. Then it hit me... can you guess? She thought ice skating lol...
Ok so whatever laugh it off, but she just felt and looked so awkward the whole time. I held her coat while we roller skated, but she was still way overdressed and her cheeks were pretty red. She didn't complain, and one point told me she was wearing long johns under, so I asked her if she wanted to change and she just said no.
I tried to play it cool, but even over dinner she looked like she was feeling awkward. Did I blow the date?

When you asked her out did you just say "let's go skating" or did you mention the roller rink? If you didn't specifically mention roller rink why on earth would she assume anything other than ice skating? No one calls roller skating "skating" ... NO ONE.
Honestly if I was her I'd have beenough pretty annoyed and would have expected you to change plans and go ice skating once you saw how I was dressed but probably would have still just went with it like she did. If I liked the guy enough I'd give him another chance but I won't lie to ya - this is a pretty poor first impression.9

No man you did nothing wrong (besides non specify it wasn't ice skating of course).
I think you should invite her again and take her to Ice skating that would be funny. It is normal she felt weird because of her mistake but you should invite her again so she will not believe that you think she is an idiot. :V
