Lately, when I want to be relaxed but still "dressed" I opt for an oversized flannel. It's like this universal piece that instantly adds edge to a look, complementing other, simple pieces in just the right way.
I tied this Alison Daley one around my waist to add some intrigue to a basic, summer in the fall, tank and high waisted mini shorts look. I picked it up for like a dollar thrifting in San Fran. I actually think it might be my favorite one because the print is just so classic.
Wearing a flannel around your waist can take away some of the revealing aspect of a barely there outfit, the big piece of fabric grounds the look so you're not bordering on naked.
Speaking of short things, I love my hair this length. I'm pretty sure I said it before but short hair actually feels more feminine and sexy than long hair. I guess maybe hair can be some kind of subconscious security blanket that automatically exudes beauty so without it, that beauty is pulled from within. It feels very liberating and edgy.
