From knee high socks and Cambridge Satchel backpacks to blouses and loafers, nothing beats a preppy outfit in autumn. Sharing this preppy outfit that I’ve been wearing recently and still loving it very much.

Preppy Outfit for Fall
I completed this outfit with leopard prints. This pair of leopard loafers jazzed up my neutral outfit in a subtle way. I purchased this pair of shoes from Asos last year and it’s not available anymore. But the current version looks even more stylish with the gold-tone metal trim. For the outerwear, a minimalist coat with clean lines and simple details have always been a favorite of mine. I wore a beige overcoat with notch lapel, single breasted design, black buttoned closure, and straight flap pockets details. An overcoat like this is not only warm, but also timeless and versatile.
Newport, Rhode Island｜The Breakers Mansion
Rhode Island is bordered on the north by Massachusetts, and it takes about 90minutes driving from Boston to Newport, Rhode Island. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, Newport used to be a popular summer playground of America’s wealthiest families. And it’s how these lavish summer “cottages” came from. Later, the descendants could no longer afford the mansion tax and maintain these luxurious properties. Now as mansions are deemed National Historical Landmarks, The Preservation Society of Newport County is the owner and care-taker of these mansions.
We toured The Breakers mansion during our visit. The Breakers is the grandest property in Newport, and it’s established by the notoriously opulent Vanderbilt family. It’s really fun to experience the elite’s ultra-rich lifestyle and explore the European-influenced architecture. The Breakers was constructed with lavish platinum walls, and decorated with master paintings and stunning artifacts.
