all right, gang, this post is short and sweet today as it is late, late, late. last night when i went to work on this blog post i was greeted with a message that said my site was “corrupted” what?!?! let me tell you there is never a dull moment when it comes to running a website. and it’s all the more interesting when you only understand half of what is being explained…
to make a long story short, the SSL certificate expired. why that happened at 7pm EST is beyond me. wouldn’t midnight make more sense? but expire it did as it was set to manual renewal not automatic. huh? the certificate costs nothing as it’s bundled in with whatever else is needed to run the site 24/7. sooooo, after i poured a generous glass of cabernet i jumped through those dang hoops the hosting site told me to jump through (my development team is on vacay until next week) by 11ish the website was finally up and running again. by that time this girl was too tired to do anything else but crawl into bed.

so here i am banging away on the keys as we speak, sipping a cup of joe and looking at my clock. because, of course, my alarm clock decided to let me down this morning, too.
but enough about me. let’s get back to today’s ootd which centers around a timeless classic. actually, i’m wearing two classic pieces. can you guess? ding, ding, ding. opens in a new windowmilitary coat and opens in a new windowchelsea boots are both classic items. each of them always has a spot in my winter wardrobe lineup.
if you are looking for a trend-proof coat, look no further than a double-breasted military coat with gold or brass buttons. similar opens in a new windowhere, opens in a new windowhere, and opens in a new windowhere. it’s the perfect outerwear for work or leisure as it can easily pull double-duty. doesn’t it look fabulous popped over a chunky turtleneck and dark rinse denim? calf-hair chelsea boots similar opens in a new windowhere and opens in a new windowhere add subtle texture to this ootd as does a patent leather tote similar opens in a new windowhere and opens in a new windowhere.
today’s ootd couldn’t be more appropriate as it’s all about winter style. and i’ve got the cold temps to go along with it. it’s a balmy twenty-four degrees y’all. brrr. wish me luck today as mr. style and i are shooting a cruise/resort wear post. didn’t i tell you there was never a dull moment over here at Style at a Certain Age?
all-in-all i’m ready to brave those frigid temps. i hope you are too ‘cuz baby it’s cold outside! happy hump day, gang!
