3 words to describe your style

I was in the hairdresser recently when I read an article in a magazine (don't recall which) saying to use 3 words to define your style and then remind yourself of these 3 words when you are shopping/getting dressed. Sounds a bit bonkers but I actually I think it may focus me a bit more as I tend to buy random things in a rush (2 pre school DCs in two) and then end up with a jumbled set of clothes. At the moment I woudl say my 3 words are random, a bit mumsy and lacking style (OK thats more than 3 but you get my drify). Anyhoo, I like the idea of chic, stylish and ?? not sure what else. So next time I shop these will be the words I have in mind. Just thought I would share.

Think I read the same article about a month ago. Idea really appeals to me, but also got stuck on what my 3 words would be. Was thinking along the lines of relaxed, stylish and ..... (Barely any of my clothes match this description btw.) Tend to buy odd things I like in shops and then fail dismally at putting together great outfit using those items.
Truth is creased (all clothes straight out of laundry pile), food splattered (small kids) and blah!

The style I can afford and the style that I have the two very different things, so wouldn't know how to describe 'my' style

Hmm... Bright, co-ordinated and kitsch?!
Or if I am indoors an ancient old dressing gown...!
