In one adorable pic from Monday, July 4, the “Shake It Off” singer, 26, holds up an American flag while donning matching bathing suits with pals Gigi Hadid and Cara Delevingne. Swift and Hadid, 21, wore the exact same red-white-and-blue–striped one-piece from Solid & Striped, while the British model, 23, worked a Solid & Striped two-piece in the same pattern. The trio flaunted their long legs in the snap, which appears to have been taken on the lawn in front of Swift’s home, with the clear ocean in the background.

In another photo from Monday, Swift and Delevingne are photographed from behind while they walk down a grassy hill. The pop superstar’s hair looks wavy and beachy as she strolls with the Suicide Squad actress, who covered up in a flowy white tunic. The background shows a gorgeous neighboring house near Swift’s beachfront property.

Swift gave us even more party goals by bringing in a giant blow-up waterslide for her Independence Day soiree. In one Instagram photo, the “Blank Space” singer and Karlie Kloss hold hands as they jump down the patriotic-themed inflatable, and in another she makes a three-person chain to slip down with Rachel Platten and another pal.

The weekend wouldn’t have been complete without a group photo of the whole girl squad. Taken on Sunday, July 3, Swift wades in the water with her gal pals, including Hadid; Delevingne; Kloss; Blake Lively; Martha Hunt; Ruby Rose and her girlfriend, Harley Gusman; Halston Sage; Alana Haim; along with Swift’s two nonfamous besties, Abigail Anderson and Britany Maack. (Swift served as maid of honor at Maack’s wedding earlier this year.) The 1989 songstress switched up her swimwear and stunned in a red Forever 21 bathing suit emblazoned with the word “America.”

The celebrations didn’t stop when the sun went down. Swift previously shared a nighttime photo on Instagram Monday in which several of her friends wore Tipsy Elves-looking American flag onesies. “Happy 4th from us,” she captioned it.

The one person noticeably absent from Swift’s Instagram pics: her new boyfriend, Tom Hiddleston. Photographers snapped photos of the new couple packing on the PDAs when they ventured down to the beach with the rest of the group on Sunday. She jumped on the 35-year-old actor’s back and looked flirty with him in the ocean, and Hiddleston held her hand to chivalrously help her across some jagged rocks. The Avengers hunk even declared his love for Swift by wearing a tank top that said “I [Heart] T.S.” and a temporary tattoo on his arm with the letter “T” in a red heart.

As Us Weekly previously reported, their romance went public after photos surfaced of Swift and Hiddleston locking lips on the same Rhode Island beach on June 14. The new couple have been almost inseparable ever since, jetting to Nashville, Tennessee; Suffolk, England; and Rome.
