Today in news that is so important that it warrants an alert on my phone: Taylor Swift and boyfriend Joe Alwyn touched yesterday.

The two were photographed in Malibu on a hike, like normals. This is the first time they've been seen together since December when they were "spotted hand in hand," according to E! News.

Swift wore shorts and a tank, for what was reportedly a 90-minute hike, while Alwyn chose the slightly less practical jeans and a T-shirt combo. I'd call this out for being odd (wasn't he hot? don't jeans chafe?), but once, my boyfriend wore a fancy button-down shirt when we went on a hike on an 80-degree day and he didn't sweat one drop. Meanwhile, I got a supreme sunburn in my weather-appropriate workout top so...who am I to judge?!

Anyway, Swift and her British beau didn't appear to be troubled by their athletic-wear (or lack thereof). According to an onlooker they had a grand old time: "They appeared very comfortable in one another's company and seemed to be enjoying their time together—despite having a bodyguard following their every move," the source said. "They were deep in conversation for most of the hike and their attention was focused solely on one another."

Two appeared to be in a "good mood and seemed very relaxed," the source continued. Though I have a feeling being followed by the paparazzi during a hike didn't help the mood.

Anyway, you can check out the photos and get some hiking (or touching!) inspo here.
