No shirt, no shoes, no problem! Mischa Barton posed for a risqué topless Instagram pic during her Greece vacation on Tuesday, July 12.

In the photo, the O.C. alum, 30, wears nothing but jeans and smokes a cigarette as she perches on a balcony overlooking the water and the cliffside city of Mykonos. “Island vibes #Mykonos #Censored,” she captioned it. The former Dancing With the Stars contestant even did some editing on her vacay snap and blurred out her nipples in accordance with Instagram’s nudity policy.

This isn’t the first sexy photo that Barton has posted from her getaway. On Monday, July 11, she shared a snap of herself in bed wearing a chambray shirt completely unbuttoned. “Morning vibes !!! Monday lets do this,” she wrote.

She also raised eyebrows on July 7 when she shared a long Instagram tribute to Alton Sterling, who was killed by police in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on July 5. Her caption was well intentioned, but she accompanied the text with a photo of herself looking somber in a black bikini as she held a glass of rosé on a yacht.

“I’m truly heartbroken to watch videos like the #altonsterling execution. This may have been going on forever in the United States but thank god the pigs get caught on camera now,” she wrote in the since-deleted post. “Its unthinkable and an embarrassment to America. The country I was brought up in. Somebody make change. We need gun control and unity. And a real President so think about that when this election is around the corner. The world is a precarious place right now #stop #reflect and #act appropriately.”

Her Instagram followers immediately expressed their outrage with her photo choice. “Like the sentiment, but hard to take you seriously while you post a picture of you sipping alcohol on a yacht,” one commenter wrote.

The actress later tweeted an apology: “I’m human I’m not perfect and I’m sorry if my Instagram post went out of context I didn’t mean to offend anyone.” She also posted three more appropriate photos to memorialize Sterling, including one of his family and a quote by Malcolm X
