We know you have no time for long-winded how-to’s, so we’ll keep it short. In under a minute, Quick Tips are here to help you with life’s little lessons. So unless you get caught up watching hundreds in a row, which – warning – you just might, you can quickly get back to monitoring your news feeds or whatever you were doing. Check out the full video series here.

Along with spring flowers comes topsy-turvy weather and roller coaster temperatures. Dressing for the season’s highs and lows can be challenging, but by using your existing wardrobe and a little creativity, you can transform your worn heavy sweater (or a secondhand find!) into appropriate spring outerwear. Here today is Krrb’s Ashley Schwartz with an easy how-to on reworking winter knits into suitable spring layers. You’ll need chalk, scissors, fabric glue, and an old sweater begging to be enhanced.

    Love this! Tried this & spiced it up a bit with some cute spring button additions on the sleeve ends. To just give another possibility, you could roll the sleeve up after the cut to have a more edgy look.
