Accessory Porn for Monday: Scarves

Hello everyone! Hope you had a great weekend! I did, and it's feeling really hard to get back to work today. I need a bit of fluff. Fluff and fabric and things that drape, tie and/or bind beautifully. I'm thinking…scarves.

A friend suggested I perk up my Monday outfit with a fun red scarf. So I did. And that got me thinking about how much I love the whole Springtime scarf thing. When it's not quite warm enough for summer bare-ness, a pretty scarf gives a bit of warmth and coverage. And they are endlessly versatile: you can wear them draped over a pair of jeans, layered over a skirt, as a halter, belt, skirt, etc. You can liven up a neutral outfit, and even hide hair gone…um…askew from April showers. And they're also just plain cute, pretty, lovely, feminine and flattering.

Today I'm posting a few images to ooh and aah over (and links).
