What to Wear: Green Shoes

Isn't it tricky when you get a pair of shoes you love and then can't think what to wear them with. Here is Nicole's request:
I love your blog! I was hoping you could help me with a fall shoe dilemma. I love these green shoes, but I don't know what to wear with them. I would like my outfit to coordinate, without appearing matchy-matchy. Casual and/or dressy ideas would be great. I am student with limited funds; however, I am willing to invest on a few nice items. Please help! I really want to wear these and look good doing it!
I think these shoes are best with a work outfit. Hopefully, Nicole has someplace she can wear the following suggestion:

Shoes - Green patent leather, bow-decked babies.
Skirt - A well fitted black pencil skirt is a must have for any wardrobe.
Shirt - White with a few ruffles from Old Navy.
Sweater- Green argyle is fun dressed up or with jeans. Put it on your holiday wish list. You could add a skinny belt, but that always feels like a little much to me.
Coat - From J.Crew as well.
Bag - This site vexes me. So lovely, so expensive.

I just realized this is a true "Jean outfit", aka something green that my sister would wear in a New York minute. Enjoy, Nicole!
