I ordered the Caslon cropped pants below, but either the fit or I have changed since last year. They fit OK, but not spectacularly, and I'm not sure if I should return or not.

We have suddenly rocketed into too-hot-for-jeans weather - yesterday was nearly 100 degrees - and I am scrambling for something that will work on the smart casual end of things, with nice sandals or flats. I've got a few shorts for the weekends, but I want something a bit dressier, cropped
pants or capris, and not in denim, because that's too hot/heavy. Any thoughts? I've looked at Loft and Gap and not been blown away by anything.
