The first day of fall has arrived and we've had a few crisp, cool mornings and some breezy afternoons in North Carolina. With the return of fall, I'm craving hot cocoa and dreaming of evenings spent by the fireplace! It has be reminiscing about this trendy and cozy cafe we visited in Quebec City called Café-Bar Artéfact located in the Auberge Saint Antoine Hotel.

I love shopping at Nordstrom and if you've never tried Guerlain you should. Guerlain Beauty products are made in France and their product standards strive to meet attention to quality and detail in all their products. The color matching in their lipsticks is still tested by people not by machines. Nordstrom has an exclusive lipstick by Guerlain called 'La Petite Robe Noire' which has beautiful acrylic details (see slideshow below and click on the image to purchase). I purchased the color '068 in Mauve Gloves' but I think the Red in '003 Red Heels' would be beautiful for fall. Every shade of red is red hot for fall fashion so you can't go wrong with a bold, red lip.
I have been wearing Guerlain Bronzer since 2009 and feel that it gives off the perfect summer tan all year round. I purchased the 'My Terracott Summer Limited Edition' bronzer which comes in Blondes or Brunettes. I usually use the Terracotta Blondes Bronzer but I think the limited edition will be a refreshing change and will give a beautiful tan glow. Nordstrom is offering a free gold gift bag and samples when you spend $200 with Guerlain.
The necklace pictured is by Kenneth Jay Lane but this is an older purchase so, I linked two similar necklace in the slide show above by H&M.
This is a great transitional piece from Summer to Fall. It's pretty hot out for September, it's been around 80 degrees up to 90 degrees still. This piece is very light weight and the fabric drapes beautifully with the three tiered layers and pleating. This dress could be dressed up with heels for work and would also be cute for brunch on the weekend.
