I'd Rather Be: An Eccentric Floridian Grandma

While a Personal Shopper can give you what you need for real life, I'd Rather Be sets you up for fantasy lives you didn't even know you had. Because sometimes a new shampoo isn't enough for a whole new you. (Want us to outfit your alter ego or your alternate reality? Just say the word!)

We weren't kidding when we said our look for spring was "eccentric Floridian grandma". We're not poking fun - we're really jealous of those older women in our lives who have managed to achieve that perfect level of not giving a you-know-what. They hail from all over the country, but we think there's something extra to be appreciated about those little old ladies who have opted to retire to the 27th state.

  • Starting with the shade that inspired it all, we really have been sporting this "Snappy Sorbet" nail color ($4), regardless of whether or not it really matches the rest of our outfits.
  • It's no matter though, because with as many colors as are going on in this - dare we say it - muumuu ($209), matching is irrelevant.
  • And just because our dress is busy, it doesn't mean we're going to skimp on the accessories. These chandelier earrings ($35) look like the kind of thing we'd pull out of Grandma's jewelry drawer, plus they're a little tropical to boot.
  • At our height, we're definitely going to be putting the "little" in "little old lady", so we'll compensate with these platform sandals ($55).
  • Not that it really matters anyway, because we don't plan on getting up from our chaise longue ($99).
  • To keep our eyes protected from the sun, we'll definitely need some oversized sunglasses ($183) - the bigger the better.
  • The sunglasses will also do double duty covering up those tired, hungover eyes that we blame on banana schnapps ($2 - we think Grandma would get extra jollies drinking them from a mini bottle).
  • One thing we're not down with is damaged skin from too much sun exposure, so we'll be slathering on the sunscreen ($18). Instead, we'll strive for that sunkissed effect with a bit of bronzer ($36).
  • And to top off our lovely and falsely tanned face, we'll add a good heap of lipstick in a totally unnatural color - this one's called "Pink Sapphire" ($30).

Apparently it's expensive to look like you don't care - this get up will cost ya $671.
