Damn, these are comfortable

Harem Pants
I often wonder how the early inhabitants of Florida coped with the weather, especially wearing the kind of heavy woolen clothes that were more appropriate to Northern European climates. It's hot and humid most of the time, and most things are just too heavy and uncomfortable.
I actually like having an excuse to wear loud Hawaiian shirts all the time. They were a little out of place back in England, but here, I can blend in quite nicely.
It didn't take me long to get past my natural British aversion to wearing shorts. Showing my bare legs felt weird at first, but it was so nice to feel cool.  So apart from a few months when it's a little chilly, I mostly live in shorts all year round.
But then I found these while looking for yoga pants.
Super comfortable, lightweight, cotton pants, made in Thailand. I was put off at first because they're from a site in Bangkok called Harem Pants which felt a bit girly, but I let myself get talked into buying a couple of pairs.
Oh. My. God.
They are literally the most comfortable thing I have ever worn. Believe it or not, they're actually cooler than not wearing pants at all. They're super lightweight and soft, and they have a drawstring so they fit perfectly. They're like pajamas, but way better.
Honestly, I can't see myself wearing anything else around the house ever again.
