My Valentine’s Day: Pizza + Peroni

Gary and I celebrated our Valentine’s Day by enjoying our last night in the home we’ve been living in for almost two years  (the same home I spent the first 18 years of my life in). Living with my husband in my childhood home was kind of strange at first (i.e. sleeping in the same room my parents did, not hearing my brother stomping through the house, or not seeing my mom out on the front porch swing) but we ultimately enjoyed our time in the woods 😉 Now it’s time for a new chapter with our move to The Golden Isles!

So, for our last night in Hoboken, GA I picked up a pizza and a six pack of Peroni (because it’s the perfect beer to drink with Pizza) as we enjoyed a final winter fire together and discussed our new adventure. Wild Souls Valentine's Day Pizza and Peroni


Anne Yarbrough (view more of her amazing work here) was sweet enough to come out to our house a couple of months ago to take some photos of us and our dogs in our natural habitat. I will always look back on them as a reminder of this amazing chapter 😉_ASC4128 _ASC4141a _ASC4153 _ASC4190 _ASC4240

My Outfit: Blanket Scarf from Wild Souls // Cotton Sweater, similar here // Pixie Pants from Wild Souls // Frye 8R Engineer Boots

What to Wear: Valentine’s Day

Yesterday we covered what to wear on a date night out with your beau, but maybe those aren’t your Valentine’s Day plans… Ultimately, you should be spending time with those you love, so here are some additional outfit ideas if you’re not planning on a romantic evening out on the town: Valentine's Day What to Wear Friends Family

DINNER WITH FAMILY: Maybe your plan is to give Grandma a night off and cook dinner for your family. If so, try wearing something soft and feminine to remind them that you’re still their “little girl.”

1. Floral Garnet Hill Sweater // 2. J. Crew Toothpick Jean // 3. Pink Tieks

Menu: Chicken in Garlic Gravy, Smashed Potatoes, Pancetta Brussel Sprouts, 7-Up Biscuits, & Red Velvet Cobbler for dessert.

ROMANTIC DINNER IN: Valentine’s Day is one of the busiest restaurant nights of the year, so maybe you would rather avoid the crowd. It can be really fun to cook together anyway, but wear something with layers so that as the evening progresses you can give him a peek at what’s underneath 😉

4. Boden Cardigan // 5. Beaded Dress //6. Grey Heels

Menu: Steaks with Compound Butter, Roasted Asparagus w/ Mushrooms, Hasselback Potatoes, & Chocolate Covered Strawberries for dessert.

OUT WITH FRIENDS: Through all of your bad dates and broken hearts, it’s your friends that have been there for you. So, instead of having a kitchen to clean (because that’s no fun with a hangover) Go out with your original true loves, your girl friends, and party the night away wearing some of those clothes that females love and guys just don’t understand.

7. Polka Dot Peplum Top // 8. GAP Deconstructed Black Jeans // 9. TOMS Basket Weave Booties

What to Wear: Valentine’s Day Night Out

No matter if you’re going out with a new flame or a serious beau, there is a date night dress for every occasion. Below we’ve selected a variety of dresses that should fit the bill: What to Wear for your Valentine's Day Night Out


Fitted: If you’re in a long term relationship, this red mini bodycon dress from ASOS is great for a date night out. After years of sweatpants and flannel robes, it’s good to remind him of what you’ve got underneath 😉

Flared: You’ll get years of use out of this little red dress from Shabby Apple! It’s timeless and great for any occasion!

Lace: This lace panel shift from Anthropologie is beautiful and unique! Perfect for a sunset dinner cruise.


Fitted: You can’t go wrong in this body-hugging LBD from Venus! It’s a timeless silhouette that looks flattering on most body types.

Flared: If you’re dating someone new, this dress from ModCloth is absolutely perfect! It shows a little skin, but still leaves enough to the imagination.

Lace: This lace sleeved dress from Nordstrom is perfect for an elegant evening out! Added bonus – it’s also available in petite!


Fitted: No matter what the occasion, this color-blocked dress from White House Black Market is incredibly flattering and will slim you in all the right places 😉

Flared: Remember the “Naked Dress” from Sex and the City when Carrie goes on her first date with Big? I always think of that dress when I’m trying to find a dress for a date night. This blush leather dress by Gianni Bini is reminiscent of that moment and makes a perfect dress for a romantic dinner in.

Lace: Another one from Anthropologie, this beautiful dress is one you create an occasion for. Wear it this Valentine’s Day even if you’re just eating pizza and watching Netflix.


1. Betsey Johnson Dazzzler Booties in Black: These would work with any of the dresses, but a fitted LBD would be perfection!

2. RSVP Emma Heels in Blush: Elongate your legs in a pair of blush/nude heels. Pair with a red dress to invoke a little Miranda Kerr.

3. Michael Kors Berkley T-strap in Silver Glitter: Bring a little bling to your outfit and pair with a red dress to truly stop the show!

4. Call it SPRING Guillermina in Red: Nothing is sexier than a red shoe. Pair these with an LBD for a classic Valentine’s Day look.
