    It's story time, dears. And, we have just the narrator to help us procrastinate. For those of you who aren't already Tales of Endearment addicts, let us introduce you to Natalie Joos, whose sweetly titled blog purports to tell "stories about friends, vintage, love, style, and life." A lofty mission, for sure, but this fashion consultant/casting agent manages to get it right with a get-lost-for-hours mix of sartorial selfies, unexpected profiles and home tours, quirky text, and dreamy videos.

The end result yields four outfits that are so different (Up-all-night neon! Sunday Funday flea-market stripes!) without sacrificing Joos' signature sense of fun. The treasure chest here? Each look is so, so easy (and affordable) to replicate via an artful, fast fashion spree and a couple vintage finds. Like you didn't know this story had a happy ending.
