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

It’s been fun thus far, but I’m not sure what I got myself into!

p.s. you can find my leopard cardigan and shell here
