The Homeland star kept comfortable for her low-key outing in a pair of pristine white pumps, while sheltering her eyes from the summer sunshine with dark shades.
Toting her belongings in a cream leather satchel, the mother-of-one wore her strawberry blonde locks loose around her shoulders, before sweeping her hair up into a ponytail as she went about her day.
Claire recently admitted she is looking forward to being able to ‘retire a little’ in the weeks leading up to the birth of her second child.
Speaking to US Weekly, she said: ‘I feel pretty knocked up at this point. I am definitely with child. I feel OK.

‘I’ve been doing a bit of travelling and tap dancing, as I call it, which is my term for letting people know that I’ve been making work and encourage them to see it. Pretty soon I get to retire for a little while and just be pregnant, which I look forward to.
Having filmed her show Homeland right up to the end of her pregnancy with her son Cyrus, five, Claire recently told People it felt like a ‘luxury’ to be able to rest this time round.
‘It feels like a huge luxury,’ she gushed. ‘When I was pregnant with my first son, I worked until I was in my eighth month, so this feels like a huge gift, to have a chance to kick my feet up a little bit.’
Claire confirmed she and British actor husband Hugh Dancy, 42, were expecting their second child back in April, but said they would not be revealing the sex of their baby.

The couple met on the set of Evening in 2006, and announced their engagement in February 2009. They married in a secret ceremony in France later that year.
Claire and Hugh welcomed their first-born Cyrus into the world in 2012.
The actress has previously admitted she would be a ‘lousy stay at home mom’, and is glad she waited until later in life to have her children.
‘I’ve always wanted to have kids, but I’m glad I didn’t until now,’ she told ELLE magazine in 2013.
‘When I was thinking about [working and being a mother] originally, I was really nervous about it.
‘I think I would make a lousy stay-at-home mom. It just wouldn’t suit me. I feel so fortunate, in that I’ve had this arrow-straight focus that I wanted to act.’
