Natalie Portman knows the key to winning maternity attire is striking the right balance between comfort and effortless chic, and the expectant mother's latest lunchtime ensemble is the perfect embodiment of the two elements.

The radiant mom-to-be, who is expecting her second child with husband Benjamin Millepied, stepped out in Los Feliz in Los Angeles Monday to grab lunch with a friend dressed in casual separates, including a form-fitting white forearm-length T-shirt, which she dressed up by layering with a flowing knee-length dove gray cardigan with front pockets.

Straight leg black slacks and gray sneakers, along with edgy black aviators and a statement quilted black Dior tote topped off the Academy Award winner's mid-day outfit. The Black Swan star opted to keep her flawless skin makeup-free and pull her dark hair into a low bun for the relaxed outing.
