I really love scarves for their versatility and ability to amp up an outfit.  If you don’t have any scarves in your collection, it’s time to go shopping!  Start on etsy.com or go to your local thrift store.  I spend a few dollars on a beautiful vintage silk scarf I love, and more is not necessary unless it’s designer.  If you own some but forget to wear them, try displaying them in your home or bedroom so you remember to use them!  Happy scarfing, all!
