Seeing all the sights

Coat - River Island, Top - Topshop, High-tops - Urban Outfitters, Sunglasses - Camden, Watch - River Island, Rings - H&M
I'M GOING TO UNI!!! Okay, I already knew that, but I wasn't certain. I'd recieved my "congratulations on your results and firming your place" letter weeks ago, but UCAS still said conditional offer so I was very nervous, but, I DID IT! As of next Tuesday I'll no longer live down south. I'm off to Leeds to study Fashion Concepts and Communication at Leeds College of Art. Just got to go to Hobbycraft and Ikea to get a few final pieces then I'm ready! 
Wow, I don't know where to start. Haven't done an outfit post in a while so this is full of loads of my new favourite things. This is pretty much what I wore to London on Monday. Spent the day in Camden, got lunch in Covent Garden at the Fire and Stone (which was amazing!), went to the Natural History Museum (my boyfriend had never been!) then got a late night meal at Charings Cross Brasserie. Personally I hate spending lots on food, but it was incredible. 
Anyway, I got this BEAUTIFUL watch from River Island, it was huge for my teeny wrist but I got it adjusted so spent £30 in total on it, much cheaper than me getting my dream Michael Kors watch. I also got the River Island version of the jacket everyone loves. Personally, it's my favourite one, I love the rolled up sleeves so much! Literally trying to stop myself living in it, if you follow me on WIWT you will have already seen it a few times. I post my outfits on there daily so follow me to see!
My final new buys are these lovely H&M rings, I got about 10 in a pack for 2 or 3 pounds, not sure. They're so lovely, and I love layering up all the rings on different fingers, my perfect buy! I also finally got High-tops. Saw these in Urban Outfitters, I was going to get some "Old Skool" Reeboks or some grey drop back Nike's, but these won me over. My boyfriend persuaded me and I gave in, and I don't regret it at all, so in love with them!
