how to shop the nordstrom anniversary sale like the influencers do

Influencers have a plan.

Nordstrom Cardholders get early access, starting at 12:30pm EST July 12, for 7 full days before the sale opens to the rest of the public! This is HUGE, because items fly off the shelves quickly during this sale.

Mom blogger Kailee Wright recommends to have a plan – including a wish list for you and your whole fam. Now is the time to stock up for those back to school items for everyone!

LUXYMOM Tip: Sign up for a Nordstrom credit card now through July 10th, and get a $60 bonus note (woo hoo!!!).

They shop early.

There’s a reason you want to be a cardholder and get that early access – all the good stuff goes FAST! As in, it’s already in your Cart, but then it’s sold out before you hit Purchase. So if you love it, grab it. Nordstrom has free returns, so you if you don’t love it once it arrives, or if it doesn’t fit, there is really nothing to worry about. They’re a truly hassle-free retailer.

They look for good staples, like jeans.

Good jeans are constantly on rotation at the sale, so now is a great time to stock up on this wardrobe staple. Sandy Alderson of OnTrend50, who currently has 46k Instagram followers, loves Frame and Good American jeans year-round.

They stock up on trendy pieces.

Jen Adams of Interior Designerella – who currently has 180k Instagram followers and sports a killer wardrobe – is loving the leopard trend right now. And we love her style and great recommendations. The shoes below are from Vince Camuto (here are some look-alikes from mom blogger Something Navy that are available through the Nordstrom Sale) – but we’re also sharing some other great leopard print shoes below the Instagram pic, which you can shop at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
