Faux Pas

I recently participated in my first public sports event, the FIT Run, which is a bit misleading because I did the 2.5 walk.  Anyways, it's the thought that counts, so I pulled on my workout gear and did the walk with my colleagues (office bonding). 
I had plans to go to Omotesando to find a Franc Franc to buy holiday decor for the home (I'm in a nesting mood lately).  Both male and female colleagues look me and my outfit up and down and say, "You're not changing?  You're just going like that?"  Like it was the most ridiculous thing in the world.  

It gave us a good laugh and reminded everyone that even though I look the Japanese part, I'm not from Tokyo.  And yes, I went in looking like an active athlete and bought some pretty gold candles that are way over priced.  At least, after living in Tokyo, everything everywhere else seems so much cheaper.
