The daytime TV star has been taking time off from the show for the last week, and it appears that she hasn’t wrapped her vacation just yet. 

Kelly stunned in a chic ensemble perfect for WFH

When the show’s Instagram page posted a video of Kelly dancing to her seat next to Ryan Seacrest, fans were quick to call out that they had seen parts of the show before. “Tired of repeats,” one follower wrote. “Taped. Not watching,” another replied. 

“Probably repeat interviews all week,” an additional fan added, while someone else chimed in, “Repeats again! Why?”

It’s not clear just yet when Kelly will tape her first full live show post-break, but we loved her Ralph Lauren turtleneck and Roland Mouret pencil skirt combo.

It’s the perfect look for cooler spring days and for working from home, and it was reminiscent of a similar ensemble Kate Middleton wore during a recent video PSA for the U.K. campaign Time to Change.

"Movements like Time to Change have helped to transform attitudes and encouraged more openness about mental health in schools, communities, and the workplace," Kate said in the clip.
