Once upon a time, Tom Hiddleston was all, "Summer lovin' had me a blast!" And Taylor Swift was all, "Summer lovin' happened so fast!" And then the world was just like, "tell me more, tell me more, did you get very far?" And Hiddleswift responded, "No. No we did not."
The loved-up pair have reportedly split after just three months of dating and one magnificent world tour, and we're left with no choice but to hold onto the memories. By which we mean hunt down photos from every time Tom and Taylor were seen in public. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was Summer 2016.
New York Is (Er, Was) for Lovers
Behold, the first time Tom and Taylor were spotted in public, just before the Met Gala. Taylor was still dating Calvin Harris at the time, but can we please talk about the way she's peering at Tom? If the walls at Anna Wintour's house could talk...
A Rocky Start (Ha. Ha. Ha.)
The photo that started it all—when Hiddle and Swift joined forces to become the unstoppable duo that was Hiddleswift. Too bad fall arrived and ruined everything.
The Nashville Handhold That Sank a Thousand Ships
Theory: Selena's "Hands to Myself" is secretly about this moment.
Another Day, Another Beach
Ah yes, when Taylor and Tom hit Ipswich and wandered around like a living, breathing Eddie Bauer catalogue (in a good way). Note that Tom's mom was there—because that's how serious their relationship was after one month.
Revamping the Roman Holiday
Make some room, Audrey Hepburn, because Hiddleswift's Roman Holiday was pure goals. Those matching outfits are not messing around.
July Fourth, a Day to Celebrate America and Hilddleswift
Remember when Tom Hiddleston wore an "I Heart T.S." tank top? He probably wants us to forget, but nope, not happening.

En Route to Australia: The Beginning of the End
Taylor accompanied Tom to Australia so he could morph into his evil alter-ego, Loki. At this point, everything started (slowly) going downhill. We blame Thor.
Date Night: Gold Coast Style
Look how in love they were? LOOK. AT. TOM'S. FACE.
City of Angels/Broken Dreams
This is the second-to-last photo that was taken of Hiddleswift in public. 😥
This is Tom and Taylor's final public appearance on July 27 before Tay cut things off. The good news is we'll always have Rhode Island. And L.A. And Ipswich. And all those random rocks they perched on.
