After the longest winter this city has seen in years (thunderstorms in June? C'mon, NY!), I'm taking full advantage of every hour of sunshine I can get. Strolls through the city, picnics at the park, and dining al fresco are on my daily itinerary — and you can bet your bottomless mimosa that I've got an outfit for every occasion.

Then, to match my makeup to all my varying outfits, I swap out my lip gloss. I know I'm the biggest lipstick lover on this side of the Hudson, but when your lips are cracked and dry, the last thing you want to slather on is chalky lipstick. So, for the three lip-gloss-and-outfit combos I'm rotating this season, read on. It might inspire you to do your own stick-to-gloss switcheroo.
