Weekend Escape: The Breakers

by Gabi Anderson

One of my favorite aspects of living in New England is the ease in which I can escape and explore a variety of beautiful places. A few weekends ago Alex and I headed out to Newport for a little excursion. One of the few things we did while there was hit up one of the famous Newport mansions-The Breakers.

The Breakers is considered the grandest of the Newport mansions. Once considered a mere summer cottage that belonged to the Vanderbilts, it is now a historic landmark and museum.

Visiting on the beautiful sunny day it was easy to daydream about living a life of grandeur in the early 1900s. I felt as if I had been transported from my small Brookline apartment into the world of The Great Gatsby. Needless to say it was the perfect spot to do a little impromptu shoot.

Outfit details: Ann Taylor shirt, Moon Collection skirt (from one of my favorite Providence based boutiques, Nava), herringbone JCrew jacket, brown tassel loafers, and a Brooks Brothers canvas tote.  

Thanks to Alex for taking the lovely photos!
