The Green Skirt Dilemma, Part 2

Okay, so this is the follow up to my first post about the Green Skirt Dilemma.
Basically, I had been determined to find a green skirt for a long time. I stumbled upon this awesome vintage one (which I had to take apart and re-design) only to realize that I had no idea what to wear with a green skirt. The color was so jarring it didn't seem to go with anything, so I decided to take an experimental route. Last time I paired it up with maroon and brown, and this time I tried a muted pink and back. Here are the results:
