A colorful, lightweight scarf is indispensable at this time of year. Every spring, I purchase one cheery scarf as my signature accessory. Instantly, sweaters, T-shirts and dresses have a whole new vibe. Plus, given how much the temps can fluctuate, scarves add a much needed extra layer for chilly mornings and sunsets. Slide one around your neck, wrap one around your head, tie one to your purse strap, or simply store one in your purse and enjoy spring. (If you need more ideas, here are 15 ways to tie a scarf for inspiration!)
Whether you’re headed to Red Lobster or the Bush compound in Kennebunkport, you should dress the part. And what better way to declare your love for crustaceans than wearing them?

It looks so good you’ll have to stop yourself from dipping it in melted butter. [$21.99, ModCloth]
“Russell Brand Visits The La Brea Tarpits,” was the headline on this series of paparazzi shots that came in today. And here we have Russell, cell phone and fashion scarf in to, either coming or going from said tar pits. I mean, does this ensemble seem like “tar pits”-appropriate gear? Isn’t he worried his cheetah-print fashion scarf is going to get caught in the tar? Or that he’ll get distracted by his cell phone and accidentally take a dive in? Or that maybe the tar will seep into the artfully ripped holes in his jeans and scald his skin?
I mean, truthfully I have no idea what the tar pits even look like, so who knows if that’s even possible. But it’s fun to imagine, isn’t it? [Fame/Flynet Pictures]

Help! Won’t somebody help? Lenny Kravitz was seen being threateningly swaddled by a large scarf. A scarf so immense that is almost touches the ground when he walks. He’s clearly in danger. Either that, or he mistakenly wore a couch throw. [Photo: Pacific Coast News]

Words are awesome. Scarves are awesome. Together they become a beautiful accessory that warms the neck and stimulates the mind. Ready to get crafty? All you need to make your own is a simple scarf, fabric pens, and a favorite quote, lyric, or poem (excellent penmanship also comes in handy). Love this as a gift idea for a sister or best friend — just grab a (fake!) pashmina in her favorite color and a few lines from her favorite song. Check out the tutorial over at Stamp 48.
I’m slightly jealous of this video as I, the resident scarf expert at The Frisky, had planned to make my own scarf tutorial. Harumpf. I hate this girl and her scarf expertise, but I am mature enough to set my feelings aside. I would not begrudge you, stylish people of the world, the chance to wear scarves like a pro. But for the record, mine would have been funnier. [Fashionably Geek]
Our friends over at Urlesque compiled a list of some of the saddest guys on Etsy. You know, the guys who were forced to don really stupid hats or clothing items for their wives’ or girlfriends’ Etsy stores. The worst offender?
