[Tutor] While and for loops

I'm not sure if this is good practice, but I could assign a variable within the while loop, that is assigned something that will then break the outer loop.
breakout = True
for i in items:
if i > 10:
breakout = False
if break is False:
Is the above do-able? Is there a better way?
