Float: right; doesn't keep my image on the right

I’m trying to float an image to the right once the page hits 1024px wide. However, the image just seems to go more and more towards the center as I widen the page. Using Float: right; didn’t work, neither does using a negative right margin property. Trying to do this with just vanilla CSS.

Here’s the part of the code it’s in:
HMTL:

<div class="container">
		<div class="profile-image">
			<img src="images/responsive-layout-profile.png" alt="Student profile image">
		</div>
			<p class="tag">Hi!!</p>
		</div>

CSS:

@media screen and (min-width: 1024px) {

	.container {
		max-width: 1200px;
	}

	.main-nav {
		float: right;
		margin: 30px 20px 0 0;
	}

	.main-nav a {
		padding: 1em;
	}

	.name {
		float: left;
		padding: 1em;
	}

	.tag {
		text-align: left;	
		padding-left: 0;
		padding-top: 150px;
	}

	.profile-image {
		float: right;
	}

}

Can you put this in a codepen and link to it?

If you’re trying to make the image the farthest right-aligned element, it will need to be placed above the main-nav element in your HTML, since both are floated right.

You need to clear the floats before starting a new section. The header is using float for .main-nav and when you are starting a new .container without clearing the floats above, it is affecting the layout. You can add this to your css:
.container { clear: both; }
