Pinspiration Fail, OOTD and my first Rocksbox!

Pinspiration OOTD! 
And a story of my Pinterest outfit fail.

This very popular gray sweater, black and white plaid top with leopard flats and distressed jeans Pin featuring Stella and Dot. 
Have you seen this pin?

So here's my version:
featuring my Target clearance necklace
Ralph Lauren sweater
Olive & Oak Plaid Button down top from Costco
Express distressed Stella skinny Jeans
BP Leopard flats from Nordstrom

You may be thinking that looks great! That's no fail!
Well... even if I were to stand totally still, I'm pretty sure that soft plaid shirt would be moving around under the sweater... by itself!
It's not a typical button down. It's very lightweight, soft, not entirely structured, also loose and a bit oversized. The sweater is fitted, stretchy and clingy? I could not get the plaid top to stay still. It was kind of skirting out the bottom. It didn't like the weight of the necklace around the collar and kept folding. Maybe a bigger sweater. Or a real button down shirt. 
Sigh... it was a fail with these items together.

 So I removed the sweater. Switched out my shoes. 
It was really not cool enough for layering anyway.
This day I also recieved my first Rocksbox.
(Rocksbox? A Jewelry Subscription. We'll save that for another story)
I was sent some super cute pastel blue color gem drop earrings. Almost kept, but didn't.
This lightweight gold dangly bar necklace. Too small for my gaudy taste. But went nicely with today's outfit :) And some gold and pave crystal studs way too similiar to something I already own.

 Here's the Rockbox jewelry and my ammended Outfit Of the Day:

I'm also going to sneak in my ring reveal from my Diamond Candle. Do you know about Diamond Candles? No I'm not selling them, I just love them. It's a big scented candle with a surprise ring inside that you have to pull out once the candle burns down a bit. And you though candles just smelled nice. I think I have 5 candle rings now?
