My leather/suede boots and my ostrich handbag are from two of the Italian designers that we carried at our shoe store a few years ago! Since they are such classic designs, I love to wear them over and over!!!  Unfortunately, these exact items are not available in the United States. But Fortunately, I have a couple of “replacement suggestions“! These Stuart Weitzman black wedge boots are so beautiful and on sale! There are also a couple of more affordable options, which are these and these cute booties. You can also get this beautiful black tote bag by Strathberry at Nordstrom. Or you can get this lovely bag from Mark & Graham and personalize it.

You can get these black faux leather leggings or these or these! The faux leather leggings that I am wearing is from Athleta and they are SUPER comfy! I totally recommend them! They are all great options! I also bought these cute medium size tube hoop earrings from Nordstrom over the Christmas holiday! My sunglasses are by Chloe. They are sold out. But you can buy the “newer version” of these Chloe sunglasses at Nordstrom. My heart shape sweater is from Nordstrom. You can get a similar look here.

These dark blue skinny jeans are SUPER comfy and cute! I have three other colors of the same jeans! They are my “go-to” jeans! I highly recommend them! I saw this cute soft pink heart shaped sweater on Instagram. To be honest, I have mixed feelings about Amazon Fashion! Sometimes I find SUPER cute sweaters, tops, activeware or even cute clothes/ shoes for Valentina and Alina… But other times when I receive the products, they don’t look exactly like the picture (this happens with some of my other online shopping, too). The good news is if you don’t like what you get on Amazon, you can EASILY return it! Their customer service is incredible!

My shoes, handbag, and belts are all from our Italian shoe store. Since they are no longer available in the United States, I recommend these cute suede soft pink booties by Stuart Weitzman or for more affordable options (and still cute), you can choose these or these ankle boots by Schutz. I found this cute light pink coat last year at Nordstrom. You can get something similar here or here. My sunglasses are from Henri Bendel. You can get a similar pair here.

How to Celebrate Valentine’s Day for Couples During COVID? 

Now that we know what you’re going to wear on Valentine’s Day, what are you going to do? What is the best way to celebrate Valentine’s Day for couples during COVID? While a nice dinner or a picnic are great ideas, you can also set up a romantic atmosphere in your own home to celebrate Valentine’s Day without leaving the house!

So, how do you make a romantic evening? A few ideas for Valentine’s Day at home are:

  1. Pop some popcorn, dim the lights, and curl up on the couch to watch your favorite movie together! 
  2. Surprise your soulmate by decorating the living room with candles, Valentine’s Day decorations, and chocolates and enjoy some quality time.
  3. If you have a fireplace, sit out back, cozy up, and make some s’mores together! 
  4. Cook your significant other a romantic meal. Or better yet, do it together! Set the mood and light some candles and turn on some nice, romantic music. 

There are so many ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day at home. The ideas are endless! If you do decide to make dinner together, or surprise your romantic partner with a meal, you may be wondering, “what food is eaten on Valentine’s Day?”

Chocolates and desserts are great for Valentine’s Day (check out some of my favorite ways to set-up an elegant Valentine’s Day dessert table!), but for dinner, you could make a nice peppercorn steak or roast chicken, and a fancy potato side dish. Or, you could make something fun, like different types of pasta! Spaghetti carbonara or fettuccine alfredo are always a hit! Or even a big fancy salad with all kinds of delicious veggie toppings! You could even make something new that neither of you have ever tried before!

If you DON’T feel like cooking, there is nothing wrong with finding some nice food delivery in your area for Valentine’s Day. If you want to eat pizza and chill out on the couch instead of having a big fancy evening, by all means!!! Whatever you decide to do, and whatever you decide to eat, it’s YOUR Valentine’s Day!!

How to Enjoy Valentine’s Day While Single During COVID

There are SO many fun things you can do on this special holiday. If you are wondering what to do on Valentine’s Day when single, then here are a few things you can plan for this wonderful and special day!!

Tips for celebrating Valentine’s Day if you are single:

  1. Invite some friends over and have a girls day! Watch movies, eat some snacks, and have fun with just the girls!
  2. Create a relaxing atmosphere and have your very own spa day – light candles, put on a face mask, take a hot bath, and just relax!
  3. Treat yourself! If there is something a little pricey that you’ve been eyeing for a while, now is definitely the time to get it! Splurge a little, and treat yourself with something special!
  4. Take an online class! There are TONS of online cooking classes, dancing classes, art classes, and more! And on Valentine’s Day, a lot of them are themed! Learn how to make DELICIOUS dark chocolate desserts this Valentine’s Day from your own kitchen!!

How to Celebrate Valentine’s Day With Your Kids During COVID?

While Matt and I hope we will get to spend a little much-needed quality time together at SOME point during Valentine’s Day (hahaha fingers crossed!!), we will for sure be spending some time with the whole family as well. While normally we would go out and do something, during COVID, it’s been a little tough trying to find things to do together!

So how can you have a fun and enjoyable Valentine’s Day with your kids during COVID?

  1. Just because COVID is around, doesn’t mean you can’t still go to your local park(while following the social distancing rules), or have a fun picnic together as a family!
  2. Make Valentine’s Day cookies and other sweet treats!
  3. Take a trip to your local library and pick out some Valentine’s Day-themed books to read together! If you’re steering clear from public places, then ordering on Amazon is another great option!

While it’s nice to give and receive gifts from your significant other, it’s also great to give your kids Valentine’s Day presents, too! They love feeling loved and involved!! 

A Few Nice Valentine’s Day Gifts for Kids Are:

  1. A fun Valentine’s Day-themed craft you can do together!!
  2. Valentine’s Day baskets for kids – fill them with their favorite candy, a huggable teddy bear, and anything else you think they’ll like!
  3. A customized stuffed animal for them to snuggle with when they fall asleep!! (Especially after a Valentine’s Day candy sugar rush, hahaha!!)
  4. Matching Valentine’s Day-themed pajamas! I love the ones that have a cute heart pattern – SO adorable!

It just goes to show, you can have just as great of a Valentine’s Day with your significant other as having a Valentine’s Day with kids! (LOL!!). However you choose to enjoy it, I hope you all have a Happy Valentine’s Day this year and I hope this guide on what to do and what to wear on Valentine’s Day is helpful for you!!
