Roller blades or roller skates?

I go to a skate rink but only ever use skates. I'd like to start skating on bike paths and places like that outside - would blades be better for this? Are they better for going over twigs and other small obstacles? or are roller skates just as good?

I would imagine roller blades would be better, I'm a vintage girl at heart and love my retro boot skates so not into roller blades but don't like taking them outside due to debri on pathways.
I also longboard skateboard and street SUP but look for areas that have smooth surfaces to cruise to avoid the whole debri, sudden stop, hit the pavement painfully routine! My family and friends think I'm mad at my age but what can I say - young at heart!
