In celebration of summer, Coast to Coast caught up with Rachel Leinwand, a diamond fashion buyer during the week and a beach enthusiast on the weekend, to tell us her favorite items to carry in her beach bag! Click through the gallery below to see her picks.
I am originally from Long Island, NY and graduated from the University of Virginia in 2008. I have been with the company for about eight years, moving from the Macy’s internship and Executive Development Program to hold various roles in Center Core merchandising. I am also the Women at Macy’s Employee Resource Group leader in New York City and on the junior board of Ronald McDonald House New York.
Favorite beach: Eaton's Neck, Long Island, located in the town of Northport, on the north shore of Long Island, tucked away on the sound. Northport has the most quintessential American summertime feel, straight out of a movie. There are ice cream shops on every corner, boats parked on the docks, and everyone is so warm and friendly.
Favorite summer 2016 song: “Sweet Lovin’ by Sigala!” I listen to it on the way to and from work every day.
Favorite outdoor activity: For exercise? Running. For fun? Sitting outside with friends and a bottle of wine.
Summer work wardrobe staple: You can’t go wrong with a floral print dress!
