Happy birthday today to our girl Taylor Swift, the same starlet whose heartfelt lyrics have made us laugh, cry, and question our relationship choices. Today, the country singer and music industry leader turns 26. We can't say enough about her ability to always inspire—whether that be with her retro style, song-writing skills, or knack for bringing women together all in the name of friendship. Um, #squadgoals anyone?

With the holidays approaching, we also can't forget about Swift's always on-point, holiday-themed Instagram posts. During winter months, Swift frequently hosts cozy get-togethers with fellow Hollywood 20-somethings (see: baking parties with the squad, etc.). Not to mention, she always seems to be dressed and ready for the next holiday party. Hence, the red lips, cozy beanies, warm sweaters, and sparkly concert gear she never leaves the house without. After all, girl's gotta be prepared during the holiday season. You just never know when the Swiftie squad will come to call.
