Help me fix my Popeye arms

Standard adult male body, but I have skinny upper arms. Suggestions for a workout to add some mass, specifically from elbows up?

I'm generally OK with my physique as it is - everything's the size and shape it should be for a mid-30's male, if a little soft from a sedentary lifestyle - except for these "Popeye arms" of mine (somehow, my forearms seem bigger than my biceps, etc. - it's like I got the upper arms from someone else's smaller body).
I'm going to start a regular cardio & toning routine to tighten things up and get some more energy, but I'd like to target this area for build-up, without getting too crazy about bodybuilding.
I figure if I could shift the couple extra inches from my waistline to my upper arms, I'd be happy.
How to do?
