There's just something about the summertime, isn't there? The onset of the nice weather (or miserable heat, depending on where you live) makes you want to bust out the ol' online dating profile, go on a few dates, swipe left or swipe right, or may even rekindle a romance with a former flame. And if Hilary Duff's Tinder date didn't prove it to you enough, celebs are just like us when it comes to these sorts of things. But if you need further proof, just check out the newly reunited Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower, mackin' it on Instagram for the world to see. Yes, they are back. On.
"Life works in mysterious ways but when you find your inner glow is back and shining brighter, you know it's right..." wrote the 26-year-old starlet, showing off her prowess for poetry and her knack for good romantic karma.
For the uninitiated: the two started dating in 2012, and then they split in 2013, right at the time of their press tour for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. Bower, also 26, had left Colins for fashion blogger Zina Charkoplia, and Collins was recently linked to Chris Evans.
At the time of their breakup, Lily told Seventeen, "We've made a conscious decision to go out and live life." And now it seems they have lived their separate lives and decided that living their lives together would be much, much, much better.
And they seem very happy. "Happy is what happy does," she told her followers. "50 shades of blush #cloud9ispinkright?..."
Lily, cloud nine is whatever color you want it to be.
So for all of you who don't have hope for finding romance this summer — keep your chin up! You never know which former love interest may work his or her way back into your life... and into your Instagram photos.
