Of all the post-Christmas sales going on right now, Nordstrom’s “half yearly” winter sale is particularly good — a nice mix of basics and more fashion-y picks, all up to 50 percent off. And this Longchamp tote offers the best of both: It’s the classic water-repellent Le Pliage design, one of our picks for the best work bags for women, but the bright, monochromatic red doesn’t feel too fusty. In fact, the whole thing is very Kindercore — the primary-color-focused, toddler-esque design that’s having a bit of a moment. The bag also comes in all-green or all-blue, in case red isn’t your color.
