30 Times We Desperately Wanted to Be in Taylor Swift’s Squad

It’s no secret that Taylor Swift and her besties created a friendship phenomenon known as #squadgoals. Here are 30 ridiculously amazing Instagram photos that prove the squad is real, and we are dying to be part of it.

 

Funny Faces

 

 

They casually take funny photos before prom the VMAs.

 

Cell Phone Takeovers

 

 

Because how cool would that be to have Cara Delevingne regularly steal your phone to take selfies and cleavage shots?

 

Godmother

 

 

Swift formed such a close bond with squad member Jaime King that Swift was chosen to be the godmother to one of King’s sons—an honor that, of course, brings countless angelic photo ops.

 

Concerts

 

 

Squad members get to make appearances at Swift’s sold-out concerts.

 

Stage Pics

 

 

And take super-cute bestie photos like this in front of thousands of screaming fans.

 

Cake Masterpiece

 

 

Friends who bake flag cakes together on the Fourth of July stay together (obviously).

 

Animal Floats

 

 

Every squad member gets his or her choice of a giant swan, flamingo, or unicorn inflatable float.

 

Double Dates

 

 

Squad members love each other so much that they don’t mind fifth-wheeling on double dates.

 

Travel

 

 

The squad likes to travel together, because sometimes an ocean apart is just too far.

 

Baby Shower

 

 

They throw epic baby showers (this one was for Jaime King).

 

Dress Up

 

 

Ugh, and they make playing dress-up look totally chic.

 

Fierce Walk

 

 

They look amazing all the time, whether they’re starring in a badass music video or going out for Indian food.

 

In-N-Out Burger

 

 

These besties know the best way to reward one another for a job well done is with FOOD.

 

Tandem Bikes

 

 

No tandem bike is ever big enough for all the squad members.

 

Photo Booths

 

 

Old squad members, new squad members, and boy squad members always seem to get along.

 

Vogue Photo Shoots

 

 

Swift and Karlie Kloss get to do casual bestie photo shoots for Vogue magazine.

 

Girl Power

 

 

The squad members never seem to let competitiveness ruin their friendship, and they support each other no matter what.

 

Birthday Parties

 

 

Once you’re part of the squad, your birthday parties enter a whole new world of cuteness. Right, Camila Cabello?

 

Inside Jokes

 

 

As part of the squad, you get to wear sweatshirts to represent your similar interests and inside jokes.

 

Boat Rides

 

 

Almost every day they look as if they just stepped out of a ’50s movie, even while whale watching. Oh yeah, and you get to go whale watching…

 

Adventurous Hikes

 

 

Hiking, or perhaps exercise in general, is always made fun when doing it with the squad.

 

Trips to Maui

 

 

Jetting off to Maui with your besties is a pretty casual way to get some much-needed girl time.

 

GNO

 

 

And girls’ night out always seems to be more fun than any date night ever could be.

 

Dinner Parties

 

 

This squad makes EVERYTHING look fun, even cooking.

 

Squad Strut

 

 

The squad strut seems to be easily inherited by all members.

 

Happiness

 

 

Swift sums up her squad life by saying it’s like “when you’re making a wish but you already have all you really need standing around you.”

 

Amazing Birthdays

 

 

Swift’s besties make each birthday party—which Jay Z, Justin Timberlake, and Sam Smith attend—better than the last.

 

Limo Selfies

 

 

Car selfies are taken to the next level, because the squad drives around in swanky limos.

 

Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

 

 

Swift gets to support her bestie while Kloss is at work (AKA modeling in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show).

 

Endless Adventures

 

 

With a squad like this, every day seems to be a new, exciting adventure.
