It’s Fall!

Hi Lovelies!

It’s finally feeling like Fall here in Chicago, and I couldn’t be more excited about it! While I love Summer like basically everyone else on the planet, Fall is my favorite time to style outfits because they can feel a lot more comfy and casual, but still look put together. The last few days here have been super gloomy and rainy, but I’m not complaining. This green vest is quickly becoming a new staple for me because you can pair it with leggings, jeans, skirts, dresses and almost anything else in your wardrobe; it’s likely you’ll be seeing it a few different ways in the coming months! The black booties are from last year but they are so comfortable and easy to wear all day through the rain (and snow!). The long sleeve I’m wearing is also a staple for me, I bought it last year in at least 5 colors, and I love how it’s long enough to wear with leggings, but also looks cute under vests or alone with a front tuck over jeans or even pencil skirts. Everything I can find online, or any similar styles, are linked below.

ABOUT . . .

Hi Lovelies! Welcome to Over The Topma.

I’m Megan Topma, and as the name suggests, I’m a little over the top by nature. I’m pretty positive that I was born loving things loud, colorful, and just a little eccentric. I am so thankful I have a husband, Matthew, who is just crazy enough to put up with my antics, and the cutest tiny Chihuahua who has no teeth and a gimped ear (he’s adorable, I promise)! I’m a born and bread Canadian, but I moved to Chicago, Illinois a little over three years ago for law school. I fell in love with the city and just couldn’t leave; but that isn’t a surprise for anyone who knows me, since I’ve loved America for as long as I can remember. I graduated with my Juris Doctor in May 2016, and can’t wait for an exciting career in corporate law. For me, it’s always been a fine line between trying to balance my bright personality with my lofty career goals but I know both can be done. . . somehow.

I started this blog as a way to document my fun fashion choices, and how I incorporate them into a more conservative profession. But don’t worry, I’ll throw in some of my best makeup tips, favourite products, travel, and a little home decor, too – because that’s what my friends and family ask me about most! I’ve been thinking about creating this blog for a few years now, and I’ve already put a lot of hard work into designing a layout and theme that represents me, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Oh, you can always find me on Instagram, too, @overthetopma
