That awkward moment when you meet your bestie for lunch wearing…a harness?

Unless you're Taylor Swift, in which case, nothing to see here! The "Blank Space" crooner, 25, stepped out for a date with her BFF Selena Gomez, 22, on Tuesday, June 16. And while the Unofficial Patron Saint of Crop Tops' belly button was all covered up, she still confidently turned heads in her little ensemble, thanks to the causal addition of a slate, leather harness.

Oh, you have questions? Swizzle has answers:

She also added this via Tumblr: "Ask yourself... Are you ready for extreme adventure should it present itself? HARNESS LIFE 2015."

Totally understandable! Right? Please.

But then again, there were just about as many:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-conversation="none" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr"><a href="https://twitter.com/taylorswift13">@taylorswift13</a> this is why I love you</p>&mdash; ashlee (@fiftharmonaye) <a href="https://twitter.com/fiftharmonaye/status/611058790767570945">June 17, 2015</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

And so the hashtag began:

For some, Taylor is clearly a spirit animal:

And a true equestrian:

Those people believe we should just leave Britney alone:

But who can resist a good lyrical pun?

That said, there actually were some practical notes!

Don't say we didn't warn you.

One thing we know for sure: Tay loves "Fight Song." (Girl power!)

Mostly, we should just be thankful that Swift inspired our new favorite comeback:
