Time to stick your neck out

Ah, the birds are starting to chirp again, signaling Spring will soon be here.  And although many of us are still wearing our warm, wintry scarves amidst cool weather, it’s time to think about a lighter version of neckwear — scarves which are more along the lines of head and neck adornments rather than warm outerwear.

What I love about scarves is the fact that they can be an inexpensive ($10-$15 range) and easy way to change or enhance your entire look.  And your outfit can go from funky to sleek in seconds.  Their versatility in WHERE (neck, waist, hair) and HOW you wear them gives you yet another reason to invest in this wardrobe essential.

Right now, Target has some great lightweight spring/summer scarves on sale.  Here are a few of my faves — the first one a black-and-white geometric design and the second a light blue skull pattern (who says skulls have to be goth?). 🙂
