Taylor and Joe’s public outing comes just days before the release of her tenth album, Midnights on October 21 – with the star recently revealing Lavender Haze, which she wrote about her love for Joe.
Speaking about her TikTok Midnights series, Mayhem & Me, she said, “I came across the phrase ‘lavender mist’ when I was watching Mad Men.
FOREVER: The singer, 32, who has been dating British actor Joe, 31, since 2016, smiled as she chatted with her lover, while sporting a long-form figure in a printed mini dress and plaid long socks.
I searched for it because I thought it looked cool, and it turns out to be a common phrase used in the 1950s where they were describing falling in love.
I think in theory, when you’re in a lavender mist, you’d do anything to stay there and not let people take you out of that cloud.
I think a lot of people have to deal with this now, not just “public figures”, because we live in the age of social media. If the world finds out that you love someone, they will affect them.
Like, my six-year relationship, we’ve had to dodge weird gossip, popular stuff—and we’re just ignoring it. This song is about the act of ignoring those things to protect the real things.
At the beginning of July, Taylor was reported to have been engaged to her boyfriend for “a few months”.
The Sun claimed that the singer was wearing his engagement ring “behind closed doors” and that the couple had only told their close friends the news.

Taylor began dating Joe in late 2016 after they were rumored to have interrupted at that year’s Met Gala in New York City.
DailyMail.com reached out to Taylor’s representatives for comment at the time.
“Taylor and Joe are incredibly happy, and so in love,” a source who claimed to be close to Joe told outlets at the beginning of July.
They actually got engaged a few months ago but only told their inner circle – immediate family and trusted old friends.
“Everyone has sworn to secrecy, too.”
The insider claimed that Joe gave Taylor a “beautiful ring” but she “only wears it when she’s at home”, that is, behind closed doors.
They claimed, “Again, only a few people know details about the wedding, and Taylor didn’t tell some of her team about the engagement.”

The source also told The Sun that Taylor and Joe ‘want their love to stay as far away from the cameras as possible’ and that their alleged engagement is ‘just for them’.
And if they exchange vows, there will definitely be no Fashion, Rolling Stone, or Hello! magazines there. It will be simple and elegant – just like them.
According to the outlet, there are no “specific wedding details” and it is not known if the couple will officially announce their alleged engagement.
The Lover singer is said to have started her romance with Joe just months after her sudden split from actor Loki, Tom Hiddleston, in September 2016.
Taylor gave fans insight into their burgeoning romance by referring to Joe in the lyrics of her popular 2017 album Reputation, including a Gorgeous song where she recalls ‘ridiculing’ his English accent.

The Grammy winner opened up even more on her 2019 album Lover, championing “London Boy” on multiple tracks.
It is also rumored that Cruel Summer’s song is about the overlap between the beginning of her romance with Joe and the end of her relationship with Hiddleston.
Joe told the Sunday Times in 2018 that he finds it ‘tempting’ for Taylor to use it as her musical inspiration.
Just two years later, Taylor welcomed her lover into the world of songwriting by letting him write the lyrics to her alum for 2020, folklore.
Using the pseudonym “William Bowery,” Joe co-wrote two songs for the Grammy-winning album and three more for the record of Evermore’s sister folklore.
Although she feels safe opening up in her music, Taylor has previously stated that her relationship with the British hunk is “not up for discussion” in the press.
She discussed the decision to keep their romance ‘private’ in her 2020 Netflix documentary Miss Americana, which included rare shots of herself and Joe.
Taylor has dated a number of notable people over the course of her young life, including pop rock singer Harry Styles, actor Jake Gyllenhaal, DJ Calvin Harris, singer Joe Jonas, and John Mayer.
