I originally had on dark brown boots like my inspiration photo, but they looked funny on me. I went with my gut and switched to cognac boots and purse. Once I had the two photos side-by-side I noticed something: her boots and purse match her hair, and my boots and purse match mine! I can't say I've ever noticed my hair color in an outfit before, but there are plenty of articles that speak to the importance of dressing your "colors." Have you ever had your colors done, or noticed an outfit did or didn't go with your hair?
