How can I get my image and getFile on the same row? I must be missing something...

JSFiddle

<form class="center-block form-horizontal">
  <div class="form-group row">
    <label class="col-sm-12 col-md-2 col-form-label" for="getFile">Image:</label>
    <div class="col-sm-12 col-md-10">
      <a href="#image">
        <img class="thumbnail" src="https://www.arborday.org/images/hero/medium/hero-ring-of-trees-looking-up.jpg">
      </a>
      <input class="form-control input-lg" id="getFile" style="width:80%; display:inline; float:right;" type="file">
    </div>
  </div>
</form>

With respect to the accepted answer
Floated elements don't float up, next to non-floated elements, including inline elements in a line box above them
This is not correct. Consider the following code
<html>
<head>
<style type="text/css">
div {
	float: right;
	
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<a>Non floated inline element</a>
<div>Floated block element</div>
</body>
</html>

Julian, you're right. I was misremembering how that works these days. I was describing the old behavior which was changed years ago. IE7 and Firefox 3.0 show the old way that was handled. Thanks for correcting me.

Although come to think of it, I wasn't talking about a plain inline element; I was talking about one that had a child with display:block (as in the Fiddle). I should have been clearer what I was talking about. So really, we're both correct and the code suggestion we each made had the same affect.
