Hi There! My name is Beth Chappo. I’m a wife, mother of 3, transplant Hoosier, and creator of Bethchappo.com, a fashion and lifestyle blog established in 2012.

My Aunt Morey believed in expressing herself through her fashion choices. She was the queen of the popped collar, Reebok sneaks with a pant suit, and loved eclectic pieces that remained timeless. She knows I’d raid her closet in a skinny minute. Her fashion fearlessness and unique meets quirky style have undoubtedly inspired my choices.
Goodness What hasn’t changed? The landscape has completely evolved since I started blogging 11+ years ago. Gone are the days where you wake up and check out your favorite blogger’s website and leave feedback in their comment section - now it’s their Instagram or TikTok. Heck even the title “blogger” has changed. For the record, I’m not a fan of the word influencer and still refer to myself as a blogger…old habits die hard I suppose. I think what I've come to realize is change is inevitable, you have to be willing to evolve and adapt where it suits your brand, things ebb and flow and don’t feel pressured to hop on every new app/trend if it doesn’t feel organic. This may explain why I have yet to fully adopt TikTok…i know i know…my daughters can’t believe it. PS: Canva is one of my favorite tools for graphics.
It’s funny because I LOVE color and bold prints and yet the style I’m most drawn to is neutral and minimal. I find myself following a ton of French style accounts - they just have this ease about their style…it’s so beautiful and timeless. My personality requires more color but I have such an appreciation for classic, modern, and neutral. Princess Diana’s style in the 80’s and 90’s will forever be a favorite of mine. The popped collars, the pleats, the sneakers, the effortlessness...it’s perfection. I also love the risks Zendaya takes on the red carpet…so modern and unique and I don’t think I’ve ever seen her have a ‘miss’. And good grief Magot Robbie is absolute perfection with this Barbie PR Tour - the girlieness, the color, the glam, the nostalgia. I have been glued to her stylists’ pages. I love Jennifer Connely’s style on the red carpet...it’s always very modern, unique, and polished…I think as I’ve aged my style has evolved more with what is most flattering on my figure…I’d say that’s a good tip, right?
Oh this is easy, the Pomodoro Caftan a la Mrs. Roper from Three’s Company (I’m fully aware I’m totally dating myself), a show I watched religiously with my older brother Jarrod after school. Man was she an icon….add her to my style icon list! Big bold jewelry, more is more, vibrant colors, you name it!
My Roxanne Assoulin bracelets. I attended an event last month and forgot to put them on and felt naked the entire night. Oh and Neubrow brow serum….beauty accessory but a necessary one nonetheless.
Unique, standout, feminine, beautifully tailored pieces that are infused with personality! When I wore my Mestiza dress I felt a sense of confidence and ease…a winning combo in my book!
