Once in a while, a nice sale comes along and we can’t help but check it out. You know, in case we uncover a great deal or discover that one specific item we’ve been eyeing for months has miraculously gone on markdown (a shopper can dream, right?). Call it optimism, or even shoptimism, if you will.
Consider today a win: Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale (aka the retailer's biggest sale event of the year) has myriad backpacks on major markdown, and now we’re suddenly thinking that we could use a couple more stylish backpacks for our travels. From faux leather minis to designer markdowns, we’ve rounded up our top picks for you to shop from, below.
