I had an hour to kill before going to the airport to fly home from the desert today and found myself trying on some bottoms. I have a feeling I will need one or two new ones when I review my warm weather clothing when I get home.

I tried on these Hudson "flight pants" which I really like. Somehow the bulk of the pockets seems to read as the pants and not my legs, which is always a concern for me. Side note: I think this is a kind mirror too, although I also think I lost a few pounds on this trip because I was hiking every day (yeah, I know, I should have been taking it easier on the sprained ankle, because it's swollen now and I'll need to nurse it more when I get home).

Even though I like these pants a lot, I waited because they're a little thick in fabrication. I would like something in a similar vibe in a lightweight fabric for our hot and humid summers. Any suggestions? Mid-rise waist please.

I did buy a new pair of denim shorts at Lucky that are a good length on me (they are embroidered with white flowers) -- we'll see how I feel about the embroidery when I get home. The fit was great. Sorry, no pics of those.
