Hi fashion and style friends,

Last week, we had a real cold snap with temperatures below 40 here in Fairbanks. The outfit in the photos of this post show what I wore last week on Wednesday when it got even -49F (-45oC) at night. To stay warm I wore underwear (bra, cami, long sleeve T-shirt, slip, undies), two pairs of tights, and socks in the boots. Oh, yes, the boots have an insulation insole.

Yes, you have seen this awesome ribbed sweater dress before. The ribs of this gray sweater knit dress nicely hold air, which is a great insulation. Together with the layering and the thin air layers that come with layering the ribbed dress permitted us taking the outfit photos without me catching a cold or feeling uncomfortable.

O.k., the photographer wore thermo-pants and a down coat over several layers. He got cold fingers holding the camera. He also tried to finish the shoots in short time. I was outside in this outfit for less than three minutes.

Only my face and hands felt cold. The face and hands burned and tickled a bit the moment, I came back into the house. Well, the fingers were really numb, but not because of the frigid cold outside air, but because I made the mistake to touch the outside door knob. At 40 below, touching metals is a no-no. Your skin immediately freezes to the metal. Getting it free, of course, involves pain. 😦

For the moms and grandmas of you. In the Interior at 40 below, your sis fear the most that their little kids or grand kids could lick the windows and get their tongues frozen to the glass.

What do you wear when a cold snap moves into town? What do you fear the most when it gets frigid cold? Let me know by email and/or linkup examples in addition to your OOTD.

Sarah at Foxy’s Domestic Side became Top of the World OOTD Readers’ Fav as you clicked her post the most. She presented an outfit that was outside her comfort zone. Well, it turned out to be an attraction.

Rosie the blogger at The World Through Rosie Colored Glasses became Top of the World OOTD My Fav. This fake suit with a sequin embellished needle stripe blazer is a real head turner. I like the contradiction of the sequins (taken from evening attire) with the needle stripes (taken from corporate attire) in one piece. The look is perfect for an office party, but also for a formal event. ❤
