Southampton Chills

Just yesterday my friend (Emma) and I decided impromptu-sly to head to Southampton for a day out. To both of our surprise the weather was just a tad chilly, by that I mean around 2° and we were at least 2 layers short of the average outfit that...

However being persistent us, we decided to take a bunch of photos nonetheless and if you look closely enough you can probably tell my fingers were starting to swell up but that's another story in itself.
On our way we had been rocking out to some old favourites, as I've recently become randomly obsessed with songs from over a decade ago. They are classics for a reasons I suppose.
We had also been reading this magazine which contained so many 'ecstatic happiness' shot, therefore I've titled the shot above 'happiness' as the smile I'm doing imitates that ad very well. Even if I do say so myself.
Also for some reason I ended up editing all the shots to be black and white mainly. I think it kind of reflects the temperature and overall atmosphere outside this November. Furthermore they sort of remind me of the 90s old school television shows and silent movies, which I adore.
After this freezing shot we ended up heading to the nearest shopping mall- of course, which ended up being IKEA. So you know, that took up about 5hrs of our lives which I may need to do a blog post about as I bloody love that place. I just automatically turn in to a 5 year old when looking around and end up grabbing about 100 items and wanting them all.
Here's a little sassy shot to end it with + many credits to Emma! xx

Ciao, Jess xx
