Now With More Letdown!

Having lost all sense of decency, I am requesting your assistance, dear readers, in selecting the most professional-looking outfit from the list of items below.

Please choose one item from each column:

Column A: Tops

1) Pink Brooks Brothers No-Iron shirt stained with melted green tea ice cream;
2) Yellow Brooks Brothers No-Iron shirt stained with a large circle of breast milk;
3) Blue Brooks Brothers No-Iron shirt stained with melted green tea ice cream AND a large circle of breast milk;
4) Crisp gray blazer stained with spit-up and tears.

Column B: Bottoms:

1) Prepregnancy gray tailored slacks that I no longer fit into, requiring that the top button remain undone;
2) Maternity khaki pants that, thankfully, are too large;
3) Forgiving brown tailored pants stained with--honestly, I have no idea;
4) Impeccably clean black sweatpants.

Column C: Accessories:

1) Medela Pump-in-Style Backpack;
2) Bella Band;
3) Comfy shoes;
4) A smile, complete with poppyseed bagel bits stuck between the teeth.

depends... are the tears and spit up yours, or the babies'?

Oooh, go for the large circle of breast milk! Nothing says 'PROFESSIONAL' like a little lactation juice! ;)

At least the shoes aren't stained with breastmilk.

Hmmm. If you splice the salvageable parts together you might have a whole outfit. Of course, it might not LOOK so great. But at least there won't be any stains. :)

Thanks for the feedback!

So, to update you...

I went with A-3 (I figured, why not go for broke), B-1, and C-1.

Oh, and Eva, the spit-up was the babies', and the tears were mine (I wore it to our last pediatrician appointment, where they had 3 vaccinations).

Hahahaha!
I prefer the bullseye stains with lanolin in the middle and breastmilk around the edges... they make a much better design.
